Like a lot have said, the loveliest (and most thoughtful) rejection I've ever received.

From their website on 4/8/22: He is not looking for genre fiction like political/crime thrillers, fantasy/sci-fi, or non-fiction in the self-help/how-to/business categories.

That's strange, BriStart. Because if you click the "Contact Jon" button on his website "Fantasy/Sci-fi" is listed there. I'll contact him for clarification.

The agent's page on Aevitas's website explicitly says he is not looking for sci-fi or fantasy...

From Aevitas website:
"He is not looking for genre fiction like political/crime thrillers, fantasy/sci-fi, or non-fiction in the self-help/how-to/business categories."
So please remove fantasy & SF from his list of genres.

I queried him a few weeks ago, and was rejected about a week later. That said, it was the nicest rejection I have ever received and showed that not only had he actually read my pages, but is an awesome person. I wish more agents were like him.
