Specifically Not Interested In

Heavy fantasy. Knights. Kings. Dragons. It needs to be grounded and character driven in a big way to draw my interest.

Same with science fiction. I tend to gravitate towards grounded stories that are character driven and exist in some version of the world we live in. Not that I would turn down the next Star Wars but that's an exception rather than the rule.
