They don't accept sci-fi — that doesn't bode well for fantasy, but do you suppose they classify fantasy as a sub-genre of sci-fi in the speculative fiction sense? I'm thinking probably so.
That's what I figured. The worst they can say is no. And she's a new agent — maybe not set in her ways as to what she does or doesn't want, anyway.That's really weird that they don't have specific agent information or info on what they ARE looking for. I wouldn't assume that if they don't want sci-fi, they don't want fantasy. Lord of the Rings and Terminator are very different I would submit to them anyway.
Well, it's one of five query letters I've sent off today, anyway, and one thank you for a rejection letter I got back. It'll be easy to thank her for her consideration, as well.That's a bit odd, how is she a new agent, if she joined the agency in 2009?? It doesn't look good for fantasy, but as you say it can't hurt to try especially when they aren't too specific
