Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeI want a Knives out/Glass Onion YA level mystery so badly #MSWL twitter.com/Screenplayed/s…
Same but it could be ya or adult speculative for me #mswl
"I enjoy light contemporary speculative/fantasy. Think the CW’s Nancy Drew in book form."
is it weird if I say I want to read a speculative novel, similar to the evolution of the Goncharov meme, where a collective unreality is collaborated on by a wide and disparate community, until eventually the lines between what's true and what isn't are thoroughly blurred #mswl
Cidney🌙🌌 is querying + drafting @CidneyMayes@annmrose What book are you dying to see in your inbox?

Margot Atwell @MargotAtwellHey Writers! @FeministPress just opened for direct (aka unagented) submissions, so if you've got an amazing queer or trans story, an activist handbook, a gorgeous intersectional memoir, or another manuscript that expands the feminist conversation, send it our way! twitter.com/FeministPress/…
I especially want to read speculative fiction by queer, trans, disabled, & neurodivergent writers, stories of found family, & leftist / feminist critiques of money & economic systems written in accessible language. @FeministPress
Heidi N. Moore @moorehnIt is wild to me that authors keep setting things in England when France is *right there* and super haunted in every region twitter.com/swordsjew/stat…
Send me your haunted French fantasy novels!! Contemporary, historical...or speculative 👀 #MSWL
Before I open up to queries, I thought I’d share my shiny new #MSWL : manuscriptwishlist.com/?post_type=msw…
For YA and MG: I have a preference for speculative fiction here, although I’m also open to select contemporary works. Misc interests: the fae, talking animals, marching band, quests, genre-blending, found family, mythological retellings, and dragons.
Seeking literary fiction w genre element. Literary speculative, crime, thriller. Unique hooks & new views. Linguistic & storytelling mastery, high personal stakes, psychological depth. Kazuo Ishiguro, Katie Kitamura, Ted Chiang, Emily St. John Mandel, Tana French. More⬇️ #MSWL
I’d also love some darker speculative work. Murder, magic, gothic, dark academia, occult conspiracies, races against the clock and morally grey heroes. Across all ages I want the dark and twisted
- speculative fiction
(I prefer grounded, literary sci-fi + fantasy. no 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.)
Babel - R.F. Kuang - I want to smack this book against my face. Anything with grounded speculative element, commentary on our society, writing that punches you right in the head
The Appeal - mixed media, super fun characters, a slow burn with a twist #MSWL
I'm eagerly seeking commercial thrillers, horror, and domestic suspense, as well as upmarket speculative fiction.
In all of these genres, I'm looking for high concept stories with something new to say.
✨Diverse, inclusive adult literary
✨Literary fiction with speculative elements
✨Upmarket/literary fantasy in the vein of Alix Harrow, V.E. Schwab, or Carlos Ruiz Zafón that explores folklores or mythologies.
Bonus points for stories rooted in multi-generational secrets
✨Latine/x voices in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror
✨Marginalized and underrepresented voices in contemporary YA
✨Adult literary fiction steeped in post colonial cultural identity with a touch of the inexplicable
✨BIPOC Mystery with speculative or fantasy elements.
✨K-pop group by day, magic-wielding vigilantes by night.
✨Black and BIPOC voices in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror.
✨Contemporary fantasy and speculative fiction from a BIPOC perspective.
Or a dash of speculative in contemporary is great too! For YA fantasy, I love swoony, action-packed stories with fresh magic systems and diverse worldbuilding #MSWL.
#MSWL I am open to queries! Looking for Adult and Crossover SFF, and Adult Speculative that blends either WF, horror, literary fiction, or suspense with speculative elements.
Looking forward to seeing your work!
"Immersive speculative YA fiction like CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE by Tomi Adeyemi, EMPRESS OF A THOUSAND SKIES by Rhoda Belleza, and BEASTS MADE OF NIGHT by Tochi Onyebuchi."
I'm trying to put my #mswl together for y'all but every time I write something I want to read I get way too specific about it
like yes please I would like a queer retelling of the Morrígan myth set during the Irish War of Independence with speculative magic vibes
