⟡ Anything that comps THE MURDERBOT DIARIES by Martha Wells
Ok I want an (off world) book in which a civilized technological (maybe emerging technological) society uncovers the remnants of a lost world, a different species, who once occupied their world, even achieved greater than them before their ruin. Literary or upmarket SFF?? #MSWL

Morgan Al-Moor @MorganAlMoorOne thing about stories by BIPOC authors is that not only do they offer representation for the marginalized, but they also offer fresh takes on stories & tropes that might have been overdone, esp in SFF. Small thread👇🏾

Molly Jamieson @MollyJamiesonI am on the lookout for adult and children’s books with a strong narrative and authentic characters, most genres but especially sci-fi and fantasy. In non-fiction give me books about the shape of the world we live in, and stranger-than-fiction stories of remarkable people.
"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

RRP is known for mythology & magic, & while those remain the pillars this imprint is built on, id love to see stories that explore culture & identity in new & unexpected ways (3/6)
I'm on the hunt for excellent, original #romance in the sci-fi/fantasy genres that fits Mystic Owl guidelines. Submission details here: cityowlpress.com/queries/#mysti… #MSWL #querytrenches #amquerying
A few specific #mswl bits I'm on the hunt for at the moment: character-driven sci-fi (THE LAST WATCH), gothic horror (THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE), immersive mystery (Attica Locke's Highway 59 series), and journalistic nonfiction (Patrick Radden Keefe is a favorite).
