A VERY specific wish list item, could be any genre (SF/F, horror, contemporary, etc.) but a novel about the Navajo Rangers from a Navajo author (perhaps something along the lines of what was featured in Unsolved Mysteries Volume 3).
SF/F that appeals to newcomers to the genre as well as hardcore readers,
fresh romantic fantasy,
stories exploring a matrilineal inheritance through a trans POV,
real, burgeoning science & innovative technology taken to the next level
Faith doesn't necessarily feel like a popular theme in SFF these days, but I am always interested in novels that deal with it. Whether it's religious horror, positive representations of Islam in high fantasy, or nuns in space, send it my way #MSWL

So, since I am getting my feet under the desk now, here's a little flavour of my #mswl. In general, I like all facets of SFF, including horror, and I like my books to range from serious thought-inducing works to read-in-a-flash commercial fiction.
Sci-fi – I’m not looking for hard sci-fi. I'd really like a sci-fi-horror like ALIEN (but not too much gore!! I can handle some though), and always open to space operas! No intergalactic wars.
My new #MSWL is live on my site! Mark your calendars for Valentines Day, when I repoen to #amquerying writers!
So, what am I seeking? This year I'm prioritizing queer specfic, BIPOC voices, and romance novels of all kinds. Let's dive into the specifics!
Give me some pacy dynamic space opera! Especially if it has a sense of fun and/or a rag-tag bunch of space rogues - I need me some of those Firefly vibes! (Under Fortunate Stars was a recent fave) #MSWL

The @TheTobiasAgency #mswl day is over, but I wanted to clarify: When I say I want anything under the SFF umbrella, most people know I mean fantasy and sci-fi but they don't realize I also want things that are other genres (mystery esp) with a speculative twist!
This is vague, I know, but since it's #mswl day at @TheTobiasAgency, I would love to find a SFF/speculative in adult or ya that is weird but captivating. A little bit of "I have no idea what's going on but I am into it."
