The Agent 411 and My Unabashed Fave

In his article "Web Ways" in the Horror Writers Association's July newsletter, Jeff Ryan mentions a number of interesting blogs. He talks specifically about Neil Gaiman's blog...one of my personal faves.

Jeff Ryan writes:

"One of the most popular of genre writers, Neil Gaiman, shows that it's quite easy for him to be charming and deferential and interesting and British, all while staying in Wisconsin. Check out this great exchange with a literary agent for aspiring writers: http://www.neilgaiman.com/journal/2005/01/
everything-you-wanted-to-know-about.asp. Voice to imagine reading his blog: David Thewlis."

The journal entry was made in January of 2005, but it's still pertinent. If you have a moment and you're at all interested in info about literary agents, you might want to have a read of this post in Neil's journal. Editor of Tor Books, Teresa Nielsen Hayden, gives her thoughts on agents and provides quite an array of resources to explore.

If you have no interest in the treacherous world of agents, but you haven't checked-out Neil's journal, it's worth a visit. There's always something interesting to peruse in Mr. Gaiman's wonderful world. He's a man who not only knows how to write a wicked tale, he's a master of the blog. Like I said, he's my fave...in more ways than one. *wink*

Thanks for reading!

Wickedly Yours,
Fran Friel
