Speculative Fiction

C&W @CWAgencyUK · 2d

From @susanW1F: I adore novels with a sense of mischief, powerful prose/voice, dark in unexpected ways, but never bleak. I love a contemporary, complex family story, or something with a speculative edge - ghosts, folklore, magic, ‘otherness’. Find me here: bit.ly/3dvyqWg

And @a_cochran says: I’m looking for quality crime/thriller/speculative/SFF (would love a good epic fantasy), literary novels, historical that doesn’t wear its research too heavily, and anything with a strong concept that hooks me from the first page bit.ly/3btDWXS

Urban Legend is one of my favorite movies from childhood. I burned the shit out of our VHS. I would love an Urban Legend + The Craft YA or Adult Horror or Spec Fic. Make sure to queer it up, too! #mswl

I will always want a twisted mom book. Switched at birth. Who's your "real" mom? What does it matter? I've also been seeing some speculative robo/AI-mom stories out there with comment on guardianship, biological and not. Yes to that, too. Give me something truly sinister. #MSWL

Okay #writer and #amquerying friends, I'm dying for some new #adult #horror-- could be speculative, realistic, paranormal, what have you. I'm particularly keen to see #horror that explores important contemporary issues, a la Get Out. You've got it, I wanna read it. #MSWL

One of the hardest thing about querying agents is knowing what’s actually a fit for their lists... so I’m excited to share my #MSWL with everyone! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/mega… take a look to see my specific interests and fav reads!

In speculative fiction I’d like to see more climate-related books. Just learned about popping shrimp. Crazy. Books like Dry for adult audiences. #queryme #MSWL querymanager.com/query/Jessica_…

Speculative fiction and with a lightly dystopian angle like WILDER GIRLS and WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE. Give me something so weird here it's impossible to fit in one category. #MSWL
