Give me your horror that dismantles the gender binary,
stories that are informed by socioeconomic struggles & social stratifications,
sentient plants or natural settings with a sinister undertone (a la Annihilation),
fresh takes on haunted houses

Transplants just don’t talk about cities the way natives do and that’s the voices I want to see more of in fiction across all genres. #mswl

Cats were valued by Islamic scholars, who are said to have kept them in their libraries, because they would prey on mice that would ruin books. Cats are often depicted in paintings alongside Islamic scholars & bibliophiles

For Caturday, a thread on cats, books and the Qur’an… pic.twitter.com/OfCorjEJcZ

Okay so, for the longest time, my friend and I have said that cats are Muslim and sent each other any evidence of this. She sent me this thread today and now I need to read a story about why cats follow Islam. A fable or a myth. Please, I’m begging. Consider this a #mswl tweet.
