wolfman, I noticed the same thing with Rachel Letofsky -- both she and Chris are listed as repping fantasy on here but the agency website doesn't mention either of them wanting any SFF. I don't see any related titles on Publisher's Marketplace either, so I don't think I'll submit.

Bucci's genre listing here is different from what's posted on the website, where he lists mysteries, thrillers, historical fiction and commercial literary fiction. I was intending to submit my crime novel to Suzanne Brandeth until I saw his list. Submitted query, a short bio plus the first 4 pages.

No longer Anne McDermid and Associates. Merged with The Cooke Agency to form CookeMcDermid: https://mcdermidagency.com/2017/10/10/announcing-cookemcdermid/

I haven't found the new agency's website, but apparently all the agents at the two firms remain with the new outfit. Maybe new email addresses in the future but currently no changes that I can see.
