I'd also love to see grounded SFF and speculative work - I'm always thinking of BABEL, SHOOT THE MOON, BOOK OF NIGHT, EMILY WILDE'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FAERIES, THE MINISTRY OF TIME. (3/

Hyper-specific MSWL:
- I’m still looking for trans & queer horror! Think Saltburn, Bodies Bodies Bodies, Hell Followed w/ Us
- villain protagonists & love interests
- SFF dark academia
- competitions, heists, trials/games (including sports/clubs!)
- disability & mental health rep

Adult:
- genre bending & blending across the board!
- fantasy and horror in the same vein as YA: gripping, dark, cerebral, exciting
- near future sci-fi with alternate/parallel realities, androids, and science that feels real
- queer romance with commercial hooks!

I feel like my picks have most been adult SFF, which I *love* btw, but I also really want to have some YA & MG on my list

I have space for YA on my list this year, so I am opening to YA queries from Palestinian/Arab/Muslim/Indigenous voices for a short time!

I love grounded SFF/all types of horror/commercial romcoms/and issues-driven stories.

Listen I know fantasy loves its mages, assassins, warrior princesses, and knights but please give me more scholars, shamans, mapmakers, artisans, and bards - I would love to see more creatives having adventures in SFF! #MSWL

#MSWL In this I'm also including worlds that blend tech and magic, so this can include a mash-up of fantasy & sci-fi too!

Chinese dynasties, older African cultures.

Scifi: space operas! And all the punks, steampunk, cyberpunk, scavengerpunk. Oh and aliens.

A note on romance. I do very much appreciate the submissions I've gotten and am reviewing them carefully, I'm just really picky about romance

6) For YA, I would love a high concept thriller, something broody and moody but also tightly plotted in the fantasy/horror space (I adore "House of Hollow"!!), and heart-wrenching, emotional sci-fi like "The Ones We're Meant to Find."

For sci-fi horror, I love it all. Creepy sentient alien spaceships, Event Horizon vibes, The Luminous Dead, The Last Astronaut,The Thing, The Descent, Underwater - give it to me…

When it comes to near future, I want to see books that remind me of Arrival: first contact through a new lens. I also LOVED Ascension, and anything with that sci-fi thriller feel, with the caveat that if you would comp it to Black Mirror, it’s not for me.

For sci-fi give me space opera, political intrigue, terraforming, alien species and first contact. I loved A Memory Called Empire, Some Desperate Glory, Murderbot, Becky Chambers (Psalm for the Wild Built is the perfect solarpunk sf)…

I have a major soft spot (and this goes for both fantasy and sf) for nuns, monks, convents, religious orders, clerics and leviathan gods. I’m also a sucker for anything Arthurian, Middle Eastern & North African, anti-colonial…
