I just submitted to this agent but already have second thoughts. I could barely read his website. Why is the print so light? Is that supposed to be funny?

FYI, Mark commented at a recent conference (ArmadilloCon) that he's just started to consider science fiction and fantasy of the more literary variety, though this isn't reflected on his site yet. Not sure how serious about it he is, but could be worth a query.

This guy seems super strange and not at all what I would expect from an agent...

I submitted to this agent a couple of years ago, he requested a full, and then wrote to offer representation. After that, radio silence for three weeks, ignored my mails to set up a phone call...and then I finally got a note saying he had 'decided to focus on his own writing and hadn't known how to tell me.'
Um, what?
Maybe he's changed, gotten more serious, etc. I have no idea and have had no further contact. At the time, I was completely baffled.
