I lean more towards fantasy than sci-fi, but always love an intricately built space opera. I'm more attracted to the human aspects, so what I'd really love is a Space Soap Opera: imagine Shonda Rhimes writing a show, but setting it on a spaceship. High drama + high stakes! #mswl

"Send me science fiction with high genre elements – think space opera and science fantasy like GIDEON THE NINTH, SOME DESPERATE GLORY, and Nnedi Okorafor."

For science fiction, I’m looking for space opera and science fantasy like GIDEON THE NINTH, SOME DESPERATE GLORY and THE SCOURGE BETWEEN STARS. It doesn’t need to be fast and loud – TO BE TAUGHT, IF FORTUNATE is a favourite – but it needs to have major sf elements.

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.

I’m a total sucker for found family in any setting. Epic fantasy, space opera, I don’t mind. Just give me
those heartfelt 'with-you-to-the-end-no-matter-what vibes' #MSWL

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

I especilly want: Fantasy romance! (Not paranormal romance - needs to be fantasy!) Near-future adult sci-fi. Epic fantasy based on non-European settings. Space opera with non-European/American influences!

I'm not the right fit for hard sci-fi, but I'm open to it if it's lighter and accessible! For example, I'd be interested in a space opera.

Multiverses and space opera! I love expansive worlds with a close knit cast of characters, like NOPHEK GLOSS. I love the strange and alien, horror in space, and found family tropes. Another recent favourite of mine was THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS. #MSWL

Bonus #MSWL. I adore adventurous space opera of all kinds. (Ex Beth Revis Across the Universe or Passengers) but really want a focus on adventure and discovering new worlds.

Solar system or galaxy-spanning space opera. (NO humanoid aliens though!) Big story, big scale, big worldbuilding. Lotsa spaceships. #MSWL

More space operas, more non-Milky Way planet colonies, more alien species POV in stories. I don’t want medieval Europe in space! #mswl
