Sci-fi

Priyanka Krishnan @mspriyanka · Apr 6

I desperately want to go to space right now! I love warm, character-driven adventures a la Becky Chambers, and more sweeping space operas. Give me your ragtag crews and seemingly impossible odds, battles and hijinks (and..ahem...some romance) #MSWL

I’m really in the mood for SFF with a strong and unique authorial voice. Think Charlie Jane Anders #MSWL

For any of you who are looking to explore + wrap your minds around reflections on the structure of reality, + the way Reality informs imagination, I encourage so deeply the captivating world in @maxgladstone's THREE PARTS DEAD, the first of his Craft Sequence. (4/4)

(As I plan to re-open to queries on 05/01--#MSWL--I'll definitely be looking for fantasy & sci-fi with super distinct voices that draws on, reflects on/contemplates, and comments on reality; fiction manifests our lives, our imaginations, + I love encountering people through it.)

Three things right now:

1. Clinical books about how we can heal ourselves during this difficult time.

2. Books that offer a world of escapism such as fantasy and science fiction, etc.

3. Lighthearted and humorous books to lighten the mood.

#mswl request: #sff that's fun and light and voice-driven, with great characters, and maybe a little romance, and a really creative setting and plot. Send it on, folks; I'm getting caught up on my #query inbox. Bonus points if your characters get to leave their houses.

YA or adult or crossover, SFF or contemporary or romance, I don’t care; just send me your books starring queer, exceptionally charming disasters #MSWL

And @a_cochran says: I’m looking for quality crime/thriller/speculative/SFF (would love a good epic fantasy), literary novels, historical that doesn’t wear its research too heavily, and anything with a strong concept that hooks me from the first page bit.ly/3btDWXS

I’d 🖤 a scifi novel about all the aliens who’ve been quietly monitoring us for years who suddenly show up all at the same time when they start getting satellite images back of our planet after it went “quiet” due to coronavirus #MSWL so I want worried mothering alien overlords!

Sara Goodman @SaraWillowNYC · Mar 16

I’d also love to see something sci-fi -light. Like Another Earth or The OA for young readers/crossover. #MSWL

Alyssa Roat @alyssawrote · Mar 13

#mswl I REALLY want an #ownvoices diverse sci-fi or fantasy YA or adult series. We Hunt the Flame? Children of Blood and Bone? Why are manuscripts like this not in my inbox? If you have something like this I would LOVE your proposal in my inbox alyssa@cyleyoung.com.

“I read widely in YA, and enjoy just about every genre in it. I love moving contemporary reads, thrilling sci-fi, and lush fantasy.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
