Does anyone know anything about Sam Chidley or how to query Sam? Sam Chidley is listed on Publisher's Marketplace as having made recent deals at the Karpfinger Agency but is not listed on the website.

I just can't work up any enthusiasm for an agent who only does snail mail. Does he snail mail the publishers too?
