Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowmanI’m going to jump off this thread to say that if you have milSF that deals with various military branches and the rivalries between them, I am SO interested. #MSWL twitter.com/sharon_kuruvil…
I would want to see this, too! Anything espionage-y, on top of this, please send me. Hoping for 11/15 as a query re-open. #MSWL
Sharon Kuruvilla @Sharon_KuruvilaI always find it interesting that every sci-fi mil author ends up picking a branch of the military and bases all of the content around that specific branch; one has to wonder why we pick just one branch as our frame of reference, considering how different space combat is.

For those curious about my wishes for Ominium Gatherum, here is my current MS wishlist. I am currently open for submissions.

#MSWL I’m very interested in projects from active duty military, veterans, and their family members. I want to hear your unique story! My brother suffers PTSD from his tour in Afghanistan and I have a soft spot for this underrepresented group of brave men and women.
Andrea Williams @AndreaWillWriteToday, my first piece for @bustle pubbed. It's about the lack of military-themed historical fiction that centers black women; it touches on the same biases that @mirajacob discusses in her thread. It is important reading.
#MSWL My Adult Romance loves are enemies to lovers tropes, as well as best friend to lovers tropes, and I really fall for some wounded military heroes and alpha males with a strong softness, as well as women who can hold their own but realize they don't necessarily need to.
Lindsey Hall @LindseyHall17#MSWL fantasy w/ a translator protag. There's so much power in language-- how they translate for a ruler effects a whole kingdom, eg. I want to see the nuances & consequences of deciding how & what to translate, word play between languages, times when translation falls short
I would 100% love this. Also: messenger protagonist in a military fantasy setting. The folks who ride all night to bring the warnings of disaster. #MSWL
My current nonfiction #MSWL: true crime, history/politics, philosophy, military history, astronomy, astrophysics, "weird" science, philosophy, select memoirs, and earth sciences by experts in their field, especially volcanology or SHARKS. I cannot stress SHARKS enough. #querytip
Brit Elisabet Hvide Busse @bhvideInspired by #VeteransDay I'm hoping someone starts writing a military SF in the vein of Old Man's War/Forever War about our current culture of warfare. So much has changed since 1974 and 2005. What is war like now? #MSWL
