Please, thanks. #mswl

Fantasy is a tough one right now for me. I think I'm more game for fantastical elements in MG/YA rather than "capital F Fantasy." Weave something speculative into something ordinary. Riff. Innovate. Iterate. #MSWL

Seeking bold, fresh, literary #specfic #scifi with a strong feminist lean like Naomi Alderman's THE POWER @NaomiAllthenews, Lidia Yuknavitch's BOOK OF JOAN @LidiaYuknavitch, Sophie Mackintosh's THE WATER CURE @fairfairisles. See how to query me in my bio. #mswl

MG or YA speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 7

I also love speculative, especially for MG & would love to find something for fans of the AMULET series or something like THE WITCH BOY. And a recent fav was FAKE BLOOD. #mswl

I want a YA version of Never Let Me Go. Light speculative elements and haunting friendships/relationship. Kathy is a voice that still sticks with me to this very day. #mswl

What's on @HolidayHouseBks #MSWL? Sports books, nonfiction in general, inclusive speculative YA fiction, middle grade, especially humorous. I personally also love doll and dollhouse books.

Something I haven't mentioned but am really on the hunt for: MIDDLE GRADE STORIES. Contemporary, speculative, fantastical - I want it all.

Especially if it's about friendship, odd hobbies, or beginning to figure out who you are.

I want to concentrate on building my adult list.

Send me your romances, contemporaries, grounded fantasies, historical fiction (feeling the 1920s these days), thrillers/mysteries, speculative, and contemporary stories.

Oh, and horror! But nuanced horror. #MSWL.

Friday Black (@NK_Adjei), Her Body & Other Stories (@carmenmmachado), The Pisces (@melissabroder): Speculative fiction with a dark bent, surreal Twilight Zone-type stories gone malicious, literary fiction with subtle horror veins. #mswl

I'd also like some speculative YA/MG where weird stuff happens and characters are forced together to figure it out.

Think The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman or The Bone Houses by Emily-Lloyd Jones.

Guys, although I removed it from my #MSWL, I still love reading about cults and secret societies. The genre really doesn't matter: thriller, contemporary, speculative, etc.

Have fun with it, but also please keep sending 🙃
