Got another offer, and he hadn’t been responding to my last few nudging emails so I emailed I was closing out the submission and marked this as closed / no response.

I wouldn't recommend querying this agent. From my own experience and from the comments below, he requests fulls but then never replies. It's a real heart breaker to keep hoping for months for an answer.

EQ: 1/21/2016
RF: 1/21/2016
And then no reply ever, even with a variety of politely spaced nudges.

Hi max_entropy. He's there, it's just a crowded page and hard to find things.

After two nudges, still haven't heard anything. Not sure if he's still considering.
