Literary Agents for Fantasy / Historical Fiction

I went to the bookstore last week and went through the Writer’s Market Guide in order to put together a list of literary agents that accept fantasy submissions, as well as some historical fiction. I wanted to pass this list along to any who are interested:

My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine, Health.com., and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.

  1. It’s been almost a year since the last comment, but I wanted you to know this is still helping people! I just went through the entire list and found several to query regarding my unpublished “epic tale”…

    Thanks!

  2. Thank you so much for this comprehensive list of agents. It really was a God-send. I am an aspiring writer and had no idea where to begin when trying to locate an appropriate agent.
    Again thank you for taking the time to compile such a list for us novice writers.
