Agents Looking for Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers

Science fiction and fantasy never go out of style, so if you write in either of these genres, you are in luck.

Here is a list of reputable agents who represent fantasy and/or science fiction novels. All of them are accepting queries as of this writing.

Please note: When there are several agents in one agency accepting SF/F, only query ONE of them. Read the agents' bios to determine which agent will be the best fit for your work, and tailor your query to that agent's interests. Make sure to use the agent's name in your salutation. (Not "Dear Agent.") As always, read the submissions policy carefully. Do not give anyone an excuse to reject your submission simply because you have not followed their instructions.

Writers, be forewarned. Do NOT submit queries to agents during the "Dead Month."
