Space Opera

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · Apr 6

I am open to multiple genres right now! #MSWL
Adult sci fi (PLEASE send me a shockingly weird and powerful space opera)
Adult fantasy (twisty world politics and shifting loyalties with magic)
Adult romance (something that walks a WF line - the queerer the better, too)

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

It's been a while since I've done a #MSWL and I try not to b/c honestly, sometimes I don't know what I want until I see it - but I know some of y'all find these useful so here goes...

In Adult SFF #MSWL I'm partial to:
- Fresh twists & unique concepts
- I love all kinds: dystopia, post apoc, space opera, high fantasy, low, magical realism, urban, etc - but it HAS to be different than what's already out there.
- Mash ups and new takes most welcome

“In science fiction I’m looking for space opera with complex worlds, complex characters and voices and thrilling adventures, like LIGHTLESS or LEVIATHAN WAKES.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Optimistic space opera! Give me found families trapped together in unlikely circumstances. Give me generation ships gone awry. #MSWL

@erin_clyburn @Megan_Manzano @Literary_Tara What’s at the TOP of your MSWL? Anything you’re dying to see?! 😁

I'd absolutely love:

Complex/sweet sibling relationships
Slow burn/enemy to lovers romance
Witches
A cast of super close characters. Think Stranger Things.
Survivalist stories.
Space travel or space operas.

Seriously, all I want is space opera that gives me the same emotional highs and lows as Farscape. #mswl

#mswl I’d really love a tightly plotted adult space opera. Kind of thinking a failing “abandoned” human colony sets out to make their way home. Maybe some crazy time dilation or something has occurred. Maybe very few men on the colony survive & they are trying to save them..cont.

For this particular #mswl, I’m not looking for intergalactic empires, rogues, mercenaries, smugglers etc. I really want to feel the vastness of space, that feeling of being alone. I want the story and the setting to mimic that feeling of isolation as well as Passengers did!

Half the afternoon has been spent ranting with @far_ah_way about wanting more YA that feels like Mass Effect and @ashposton’s Heart of Iron.

Gimme character driven space opera with making out please. #mswl
