- speculative fiction
(I prefer grounded, literary sci-fi + fantasy. few secondary worlds, but rather our world steeped in liminal magic and/or technology. anything creepy, toothy, gritty, strange, something that sends a shiver down your spine.)
- steampunk everything

I am ONLY looking for YA/New Adult/Adult stories in romance, rom-coms, romantasy, upmarket/book club fiction, and women's fiction. OK to cross into the magical side of speculative (time travel, time slip, parallel universe stories a la THE SEVEN YEAR SLIP by Ashley Poston)

how many people are not querying me because my listed genre of "speculative fiction" is confusing them....I am beginning to become alarmed at the questions I'm getting....if your book has a hint of ANYTHING magical/fantastical/sci-fi-y I am open to it pls

…returning to nature & to ourselves.

I will always be drawn to international stories and settings - what is unfamiliar (& uncomfortable!) to a Western reader.

I don’t tend to rep high fantasy, but love magic & a speculative hook.

Every kind of love, please.

Today's #MSWL item is VERY specific:

I want whip-smart absurdist OR speculative literary fiction that acts as satirical or hyperbolic commentary on the oddly accepted parts of culture and society.
Eg: Kevin Wilson's NOTHING TO SEE HERE or Jessamine Chan's SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS

- near future speculative, where Earth is *almost* the same, but changes reflect and comment on our current social, political, and environmental trajectory.
- novels in verse that explore the beauty and darkness kids face daily
- NONFICTION NONFICTION NONFICTION

I love a speculative twist and will always be in for a bit of magic. I’m looking for things like Addie Larue, Jane the Virgin, and Extraordinary. I also love a non-horror ghost story, where the ghosts have larger meaning. Give me Hill House and Watch Over Me.
