Received an automated response saying he's on vacation until September 6, and that he will "respond to all queries and submissions after my return."

@Imtuss --- I found it on the FAQs, that's in question # 3 I think :) That page is actually more clearer than the submissions page. The questions are on a list, not like the paragraph form of their Sub guidelines.

Thanks, Wordologist.

I didn't see that on their website.

This is on their submissions page:
"Please be sure to query only one agent at this agency. We will not review queries sent to more than one of us."

@Imtuss -- I think they are. From their website:

"Please do not submit to more than one of us whether simultaneously or in succession."

Does anyone know if a no from one agent = a no from the whole agency?
