Thank you for querying me (Brady McReynolds @ JABberwocky) with your book! Please fill out all the info required and be sure to pay attention to the genres that are specified below.
I am specifically NOT looking for: Young Adult, Middle Grade, Children's, nor short story collections.
But here is what I do want:
SCIENCE-FICTION: Space opera in the vein of Ian M. Banks’ Culture series and Peter F. Hamilton’s Salvation trilogy, military SF like Jack Campbell’s the Lost Fleet, thrillers like Rob Hart’s The Paradox Hotel or Mur Lafferty’s Six Wakes, near-future tales like Liu Cixin’s Three Body Problem, and flat-out “new weird” like Borne by Jeff VanderMeer. Other favorites include: the Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells and Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro.
FANTASY: Cozy fantasy like Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree, sweeping historical sagas such as Babel by R.R. Kuang, and moody dark academia like Naomi Novik’s Scholomance trilogy and Vita Nostra by the Dyachenko’s. I prefer secondary worlds in the vein of The Fifth Season by NK Jemisin, complex magic systems (a la Brandon Sanderson), epic fantasy with a strong romantic edge, fairy tale and myth retellings (especially from non-western cultures) such as Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan, fantastical heist novels, and anything that can be described as Dungeons & Dragons-adjacent.
