According to agenthunter, accepts only snail-mail submissions, has no online presence or functioning email. Is the sole agent in his agency, representing nothing but horror, sci-fi and fantasy. Requires 50 first pages and synopsis sent in hard copy. No address present. Represents sci-fi writer Adam Roberts.

Apparently, so far his agency was pushed forward solely by enigmatic image.

I sent query letter and 3 chapters to this man a couple of years ago. Got my MS back after about a week, with an almost illegible scrawl at the top of my original letter, which I almost missed at first. After close scrutiny with the help of a magnifying glass, I managed to work out that someone had written 'not for me'. No signature, nothing else.

It was quick but I have to say I wasn't impressed by the lack of basic social skills....

UK Literary says they only accept science fiction, fantasy and horror, so QT's genre entries need updating (?)

It is now June. I will check to see if the posted email addy comes back as undeliverable or not, since this appears to be at issue.

Okay, several minutes later received this:

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

writestuff@btinternet.com

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 554 554 delivery error: dd This user doesn't have a btinternet.com account (writestuff@btinternet.com) [0] - mta1005.bt.mail.ukl.yahoo.com (state 18).

The writestuff address failed for me, too. I've just tried the anubis.agency address on the off chance. No bounce back so far.

I queried both the writestuff@btinternet.com and steve@cxtd.com addresses simultaneously. The writestuff@btinternet.com address failed within minutes, but so far the steve@cxtd.com address hasn't bounced anything back. I'll update the post if I get any reply.

Update: I received a reply this morning (16 Feb 2010) from the steve@cxtd.com address:

Hi,

You have the wrong Steve Calcutt. I believe the email that you need is: writestuff@btinternet.com

All the best


Steve

So it would appear that Anubis Literary is no longer reachable by e-mail. Not a good sign.
