ER: 2-21 (form)

Looks like its the same form others mentioned about being caught "at a time when the demands of my current clients leave me with very little time to devote to exploring new talent." I don't think it has anything to do with the time of year like some speculated a few months ago - he must just have all the clients he can handle unless he sees something amazing.

EQ 10/24/16 (Diplomatic Immunity)
ER 11/1/16 (Same form as JJ Probe's.) I'll try him in 2017 with a new ms and if he's open to new clients.
