*I was on the fence because he says on his wishlist that he leans toward realistic fiction or a touch of magical realism and strangeness, but I had to take this shot.
UPDATE: Fence position confirmed.

He confirmed receipt of my full following DVpit day, but according to his twitter account, he left for a trip to Germany last week, so he still may be on vacay, which is the reason for the delays.

Well crap. How's this for perfect timing--just received a form rejection in my inbox right after I typed this comment:

I hope this finds you well. Thank you for your patience while I waited for an opportunity to read your manuscript more closely. While there’s much to admire, I’m ultimately not feeling the drop-everything passion that’s required of me to make an offer of representation. I hope you’ll continue querying the project and I wish you much success with your publishing career.

The agency's website indicates "If we haven't responded after two weeks, we have not received your query."
Anyone who's gone that long with no reply, I'd encourage you to try again.

His instructions said to assume no interest if no response in 2 weeks.

Thanks so much for being in touch and sharing your query. Unfortunately I don't believe this is a good fit. I hope you'll continue querying the project and I wish you much success with your publishing career."
