I sent a follow-up email asking about my query. Not sure if this is true, but this is the email I got back today from Mr. Galen. Thought you guys might like to know.

Sorry for the delay. I'm afraid that at the present time we are not expanding our juvenile list at all, except for projects supplied by our existing clients.

Nudge, 7/10

Half an hour later, he responded "Sorry, I don't remember seeing this the first time around," and said he just took a "closer look" (at just a query?) and is not gonna request pages (and with no reason why?). I don't get it, by the comments below he seemed to always give a reason as to why he's passing. He gave me nothing. Whatever. But hey, case in point, it never hurts to nudge, appreciated his quick response back.

SF. Impressively quick response (the next day).
"I appreciate your thinking of me and citing some of our mutual touchpoints such as Clarke and Malzberg. This does sound like a solid project, but right now I'm not expanding my list in this particular area. I'm afraid I'm declining the opportunity to read this manuscript."
