EQ 4/1/19 (Venom)
FR 5/23/19 (Full Request from 2nd nudge in spite of e-query confusion-send it out to him in hard copy). That would go out later next month.
Update on 6/8/19: Full request sent out today via snail mail.
ER 10/2919 (Due to a reorganization at his agency, they're only taking nonfiction and no fiction.) Patrick, you might want to take note of this.
