Literary Agents Seeking New Clients
What Is The Dead Agents List?

Question: What’s the only thing worse than getting a rejection letter from a book agent?

Answer: Not getting any response because the book agent you submitted your query to stopped agenting, retired, or passed away (and you didn’t know it).

So…

In addition to creating the world’s most comprehensive and accurate Literary Agents Directory here at Literary Agent Undercover, we’ve now created the “Dead Agents List” (below). Not everyone on the Dead Agents List is actually dead, but they should be dead to you when you’re submitting queries because they are NOT literary agents seeking new clients. In other words, don’t submit your work to them.

Now, if you think us creating
a list like this is macabre,
you might be right…

But someone
had to do it.

Why???

Literary agents seeking new clients are notorious for responding slowly to query letters–or not at all. If that happens to you in the future, you can simply come back to this webpage and see if there’s something you should know. Maybe you’re not such a bad writer after all. It could be that your dream book agent stopped being an agent to write his own books; he retired to Key West and he’s now drinking margaritas; or, perhaps, he retired once and for all to that great big bookstore in the great beyond.

Whatever the case may be, we’ll do our best to find out and tell you what happened. When you scroll below and look at our Dead Agents List, you’ll notice that some of the names of the book agents are blue. That means we’ve written a blog post about that book agent with information about their career, genres they represented, book titles they sold, a little bit about their life, and what they’re doing now (when applicable). We’ll be adding more profiles in the coming weeks, until there is one posted for every book agent listed.
