These guys have an impressive list of authors and books. But their submissions criteria is scattershot:

Contact Page:
If you are a new writer seeking representation, feel free to email to describe your project and yourself... U.S. Mail or other hard copy delivery is still a fine way to send material...

On FAQ Page:
11. Do you review manuscripts sent by U.S. Mail or other physical delivery for over-the-transom submission?
No, not unless we have otherwise agreed.

8. Do you accept queries?
No. However, you are still free to write us a coherent letter or email or send your material and CV (see 10. below).
[This was noted below by Truchement. But do they want a description, or a ms?]

10. What should I send you?
You need to send: (i) your manuscript, (ii) your full CV (a curriculum vitae or professional resume), (iii) a complete list of citations of all previously published works (indicating publisher, date, edition or publication type, and, as relevant, sales, hits or uniques, and links to any articles online), and (iv) a full Table of Contents. Feel free to send a so-called "book proposal" or "outline" if you feel it summarizes usefully. What matters is what you have written, not a description of what you intend to write.

[So can I send a partial manuscript, if the book's not finished?? Note the comment above, about new writers.]

18. What if I have submitted or am simultaneously submitting my material to other agents or publishers?
You must advise us on submission if a project has been sent to another agent or agents, so that we can decide if we want to spend the time and energy to review it. We may not. It depends on our schedule at that particular time, and our interest.

You must also tell us if your project, in any form, has been previously submitted to publishers and what their response was, precisely. In general, we will not represent any work which has been previously marketed to publishers in any form whatever.

[These guys tell us they may not get back to us, but they expect us to wait exclusively for them? And what's the problem with submitting to publishers?? Very confusing.]
