Sent query to Ian Drury re 102,500 comic fantasy. Their website doesn't appear to have a breakdown of what each agent's specialty/wish list is, so I had to search them separately. Mr. Drury has dealt in fantasy and scifi for a number of years. However, it looks like their SFF is mostly or possibly all high concept.

I'm a bit confused about who to address a query for a fantasy novel to at this agency. They list four agents and two assistants, but they don't specify who specializes in which genres. If I'm querying the entire agency, how do I address the letter?
