Erin Murphy @agentemurphI would LOVE additional recs, please! And also, I have to say, these must be very hard to get publishers to buy ("But almost nothing happens! It's all character- and world-building!") and yet obviously there are a lot of us hungry for it.
Agents! Hello! This thread is a great excuse to remind you that cozy fantasy & sci-fi is explicitly on my #MSWL! I WILL BUY IT, please let me buy it, thank you & happy long weekend 💖💕💗😊
At last, I have a profile on ManuscriptWishList.com. My current wish list is live, though I'll continue to tweet new and specific items as they come to me. #MSWL
Military sci/fi – yes, that’s right, I enjoy military sci/fi – would love to see it. (Planetside, The Misfit Soldier, as recent examples). #MSWL
Science fiction that blends with another genre (example: romance, horror, fantasy, mystery, thriller). #MSWL
Science fiction with technology that will terrify humans and potentially make them extinct. #MSWL
I'd love to see science fiction and fantasy with societal and political intrigue that puts the protagonist into impossible situations that they must then cleverly prevail from. #MSWL
I am “off” this week, so sadly unable to pay close attention on #SFFpit, but I love me some
Sci-fi & fantasy so do feel free check out my #MSWL and query me if you think we’d be a fit! Best of luck!! ✨
Meg Gaertner @MEGaertnerHey writers! I won’t be able to participate in #SFFpit for long today, but I’m always on the lookout for engaging SFF in the YA and MG spheres.
Here are some specific wish list items and how to reach me: 1/4
-character-driven YA sci-fi, especially if it explores a theme such as our relationship to technology or what it means to be human
-YA sci-fi blended with any other genre—sci-fi horror, sci-fi fantasy (I’d die for a YA Gideon the Ninth!), sci-fi mystery/thriller, etc.
NASA Exoplanets @NASAExoplanetsThe misconception that there is no sound in space originates because most space is a ~vacuum, providing no way for sound waves to travel. A galaxy cluster has so much gas that we've picked up actual sound. Here it's amplified, and mixed with other data, to hear a black hole! pic.twitter.com/RobcZs7F9e
I want a YA sci-if horror with this sound in it. #mswl
Good morning! Finally built out my #MSWL page for all curious minds (and agents and writers): manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/iren…
#MSWL A horror/ sci fi based around cave diving.
