Overall, I want complex relationships, nuanced characters, & smartly plotted novels. A huge plus: a strong sense of place that adds complexity to the story - I don't want just another NYC book! #MSWL #Mystery #Thriller #FamilySaga #WomensFiction #WomenWriters #Speculative

With SF, I'm still looking for my Black Mirror comp leaning towards creepy, literary speculative that plays more on technology than it does hard SF. For reference, my fav BM episodes: San Junipero, Entire History of You, Nosedive, Hang the DJ, and Black Museum. #mswl
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguI want a HORROR novel in my queries ASAP!! YA! ADULT! Contemporary! SPECULATIVE! FANTASY! SCI-Fi!
ANY KIND OF HORROR I WANT IT! #mswl
Yes, please. #mswl
In honor of reopening to queries, I thought I’d list a few things I’d love to see: a mystery series set on Hawaii, westerns (esp with some kind of twist), and speculative fiction set in the Pacific Northwest #MSWL
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksHonestly one of the best novels I’ve ever read. Pick up @pengshepherd’s book! twitter.com/pengshepherd/s…
I talk a lot about how my favorite kind of literary fiction blends genres, pulling the speculative or a bit of magic into it.
And this one is a perfect, stunning example of that.
More books like @pengshepherd’s in my query box, please. #MSWL
I’d also LOVE a cool, cinematic spec novel or contained sci-fi. Something catchy, like “TITANIC but in a newly opened underwater resort” or FAST & FURIOUS meets I don’t know what... Basically, I love when the concept has a *wow* factor. #mswl
Jill Gutowitz @jillboardMore people should be talking about this: 'Gentlemen Jack,' a lesbian period drama series, is out April 22 on HBO. It follows Anne Lister, a real lesbian landowner in the 1800s, in her pursuit of finding a wife when female queerness was simply unheard of. It's must-see gay TV.
1. This is the first time I've heard of this!! Thank you for doing the Lord's work!
2. Make it at least a little bit magical/speculative and shove it in my inbox ASAP, thank you #MSWL
I'd also love to find mind-bendy, genre twisting stories that feel in the vein of my recent Netflix obsessions Black Mirror, Russian Doll, The OA, and Dark. That obviously includes a huge range, but they're all contemporary-rooted stories with speculative elements woven in. #MSWL
Marisa DiNovis @dinovismsGenre-bending, standalone YA spec fic that puts me in the mind of Jane, Unlimited—a book I read over a year ago and still think about on a weekly basis. Bonus points for a sweeping yet claustrophobic setting like Tu Reviens! #mswl
Omg, this is my #mswl forever!!
