Seems to only reply if interested and he's quick. It's been 8 weeks, so guessing it's a no.

Sounds like if he doesn't respond immediately, then it's safe to CNR.

I sent a query in early March of this year (2017), he requested a full copy of my manuscript 20 minutes later but no confirmation of receipt. I emailed two weeks later just to make sure he had received it and it was in a format he wanted. he responded. I sent a nudge last Friday 6/16 but still no response on 6/22. I am new to this, so I don't know if I'm the one being rude, but his response times certainly sporadic. If I don't hear any response for another couple of weeks, I'll probably consider this a lost cause.
