On an utter lark, I have queried him with my literary thriller.

Does he reply to fulls? I saw that he recently requested two and hasn't replied..

It indicates he is not accepting any queries at the moment.

Heard that he is now at 3 Arts Entertainment. Can anyone confirm?

tanyak1221: Thanks for the story links. Very interesting. He ruffled the wrong feathers. Regardless, though, they may have bitten off their nose to spite, etc. He will walk out the door with an impressive client roster. Opening his own agency would make sense. But if not, any agency would probably jump to take him on.

Thankyou for keeping us informed...and stay tuned.

Two very different slants to the story. Small wonder my query went unanswered!

Thanks tanyak1221. Rumor has it that he is going to open his own agency.

Same here, ea -- it appeared to be a personal letter -- but nice that he replied.

Previous comments completely accurate: within two weeks Richard sent a nice, personalized, supportive rejection, but a rejectio none the less. :(
