Calah Singleton


My Manuscript Wish List®

Hi there, thanks for taking a look! I’m Calah, an editor at Hodderscape (the science fiction, fantasy and horror imprint of Hodder & Stoughton, a division of Hachette). Before I go on, please note that I only accept agented submissions.

So, what do I want?

At the moment I am primarily looking for adult and YA/crossover fantasy novels. I’ll also consider softer sci-fi (no space operas, please!). I’d love to acquire more books by Global Majority writers. Flavours of SFF/sub-genres/elements I particularly love:

  • Cosy fantasy
  • Humorous fantasy
  • Urban fantasy
  • Afrofuturism
  • Heists
  • Queer characters
  • Epic fantasy (YA)
  • Portal fantasy
  • Espionage/secret agencies
  • Secret societies
  • Mysteries
  • Neurodivergent characters
  • Gothic
  • Folklore
  • Fairy tale retellings
  • The Fae
  • Reimagined myths (non-Eurocentric)
  • Hopepunk/softer sci-fi
  • Magical beasts
  • Found family
  • Historical

Submission Guidelines

Please note that I only accept agented submissions at this time.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to respond to un-agented submissions – but thank you so much for your interest, and best of luck!
