My word processor autocorrected "Ghosh" to "Gosh" in the address and I didn't realize it. This cruel world.

Lit Fic/Magical Realism 83K

FYI, I mentioned his representation of Delia Owens (Where the Crawdad Sings) which isn't even listed on his fiction list even though that book is huge right now. He did mention that he is looking for that type of book with a science angle (mine didn't have that) in case anyone has lit fic with a science twist.

Response an hour later! Sadly, a rejection (for now):

"...despite that great first impression that you made, I'm not actually seeking this type of material at the present time."
