Literary Agents for Fantasy Fiction


There's a lot of snobbery in the literary world about fantasy fiction - which can make it surprisingly hard to locate the right agent for your work. That said, plenty of fantasy novels have made a lot of money for publishers, and there are a good handful of excellent authors who have written in the genre (China Mieville, Neil Gaiman, Iain Banks, to name a few). That means that there are plenty of agents ready to dive into the slushpile in search of the next big thing in fantasy.
