I call my taste "timeless meets timely" meaning I like books that lean into a genre or trope but spin it for a modern reader. Fairytales? Princesses? Magical creatures? Sci-fi adventures? Great! Update it. #MSWL

When I say I’m seeking β€œlight” SF, I mean where the world fits the sci-fi genre, but the story is more about the conflict and characters. It’s why I like SNOWPIERCER (2013) as a compβ€”science fiction informs the setting and carries a message, but it's a backdrop to the rebellion.

Last night I had a dream where I was raving over the phone to a random writer about the sci fi market and how historically marginalized groups are underrepresented in the genre but Andy Weir can write like the same book twice?

So anyway, send me your sci fi.

Hello! Just a #MSWL reminder as we look ahead to next year: I'm hungry for MG and YA across all categories, and particularly excited to find MG series/SFF/adventure and YA paranormal, contemporary, and thrillers/mysteries...and anything fun & soapy or spine-tingling & spooky!

I made up a #MSWL! The main problem is that there are honestly more things that I DO want to see books made of than not, but hopefully someone finds this helpful✨

"Sci-fi & fantasy novels. I love them. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible.What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci-fi/fantasy, can pick up one of these novels & enjoy it." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
