Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror Literary Agents

And, finally, the literary agents:

  • AEI: Atchity Editorial International, Inc. Motion Picture Production & Literary Management
  • Darley Anderson Literary, TV & Film Agency *
  • Anubis Literary Agency *
  • Connor Literary Agency
  • The Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency
  • Ashley Grayson Literary Agency
  • Antony Harwood Limited *
  • Richard Henshaw Group †
  • Jabberwocky Literary Agency †
  • Linn Prentis Literary ‡
  • Donald Maass Literary Agency †§
  • Ricia Mainhardt Agency
  • L. Perkins Associates †
  • Scribe Agency, LLC
  • Lynn Seligman, Literary Agent
  • Sternig & Byrne Literary Agency **
  • The Swetky Agency
  • Writers House †ª

* Literary agents/agencies in the United Kingdom.

† U.S. agents/agencies in New York either specializing in genre fiction, or representing a lot of writers of genre fiction.

** Sternig & Byrne represent science fiction, fantasy, horror, and mystery writers exclusively, but are located in Wisconsin. They also say, "Our client list is comfortably full and our current needs are therefore quite limited."

‡ Linn Prentis once ran the Virginia Kidd Literary Agency, which had a special interest in science fiction and fantasy.

§ Donald Maass has written several novels, has written several non-fiction books aimed at writers of fiction, and "specializes in commercial fiction, especially science fiction, fantasy, mystery and suspense."

ª Specializes in popular fiction. Albert Zuckerman's agency. Like Maass, Zuckerman has also written non-fiction books aimed at writers of fiction. Zuckerman is writer Ken Follett's agent.

The agents/agencies I know little about shall be vetted with the AAR (Association of Authors' Representatives) and the SFWA (Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America) to make sure they're legitimate. Anyone can set up a sign and call themselves an agent, and then proceed to rip people off, but there are people and organizations who do their best to help authors find legitimate representation.

On a final note (and off-topic, no less), I was just taking a gander at the splash page for's Author Central. Interesting stuff, no? They provide links to examples, namely the pages of Nora Roberts and Neil Gaiman. P'rhaps someday there'll be a G D Townshende page at Amazon's Author Central. Whatcha think?

While I'm off-topic, I should add that another update's been added. You'll now find a small avatar of myself in the upper left-hand corner.
