Literary Agency
Award-winning independent literary agency based in Oxford.

I’m particularly in the mood for astrology-inspired fantasy, courtly intrigue, a witchy romance, myth & fairytale retellings, sapphic romantasy, undercover assassins, life or death trials and anything dark academia...

Davi Lancett
Editor @TitanBooks . Big on books, games and food. Pizza deserves its own section. 🎃

4 - Queer fantasy, queer SF, queer dark academia, queer Gothic, queer roadtrips, queer retellings, queer… you get the gist.

In fantasy: Anything with a fairy tale at the root of the story is fair game but also any retelling of a classic story is my jam. From Shakespeare to Spielberg, I love stories that take familiar characters and upends their world and everything we thought we knew about them. #mswl

In historical fiction, I’d prefer stories not set in Western Europe or the USA. Hidden histories and female-led retellings are also up my alley.

Across categories/genres: #LGBTQ stories of all flavors, any retelling “but make it gay” is pretty much would be something I want to read always. #mswl

Upmarket speculative fiction. Grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings of fairy/folk tales, horror. The majority of my favourite books of all time live in this genre. #MSWL
