For adult fantasy Iโ€™d love something a-la BLACK SUN but without magic. Decolonial epic fantasy without magic with a dark atmospheric edge โ€” the more psychological and twisted the better. Would love to see some fresh voices and mythology retellings on second worlds

For YA and MG: I have a preference for speculative fiction here, although Iโ€™m also open to select contemporary works. Misc interests: the fae, talking animals, marching band, quests, genre-blending, found family, mythological retellings, and dragons.

contemporary retellings of non-Western folklore have been on my wish list for a while now, but i'd also like to see BIPOC- and queer-led reinventions of ~the classics~ like @NghiVoWriting's THE CHOSEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL

- suspense and psychological thrillers, but specifically with a textured, vibrant sense of setting (think Gillian Flynnโ€™s SHARP OBJECTS)
- folklore and mythological retellings, particularly non-Eurocentric traditions
- magical realism

I have *obsessively* been playing Hades for the past nine days, so, naturally: #mswl for folklore or myth retellings; #mswl for fraught family dynamics, particularly difficult fathers; and #mswl for a polyam triad in the vein of Thanatos x Zagreus x Megaera ๐Ÿ’•

I'm trying to put my #mswl together for y'all but every time I write something I want to read I get way too specific about it

like yes please I would like a queer retelling of the Morrรญgan myth set during the Irish War of Independence with speculative magic vibes

Announcing an addition to my #MSWL. We have been seeing some reimagining of legendary folklore or Greek mythology. More of that please. But I'd also love to see a retelling of Hawaiian mythology and/or legends.

I'm marathoning every (good) Cinderella movie ever made with my baby girl today and it really, really makes me want a Cinderella retelling. Ever After's my fave & I'd especially vibe something realistic & historical like that but will look at anything you send me! #MSWL

#MSWL while I absolutely love middle grade horror and dark fantasy, I'm seeing A LOT of it in queries. Would love to see some variety! Sci-fi, fairytale retellings, contemporary, something tragic, joyful stories, series oriented, adventure, etc
