Some ntoes of Jeff Vandermeer's new trilogy being develped into a cool movie and his literary reps:
Sally Harding at The Cooke Agency which represents authors of literary and commercial fiction (including science fiction, fantasy and crime); narrative-driven nonfiction in the areas of health and well-being, popular culture, science, history, natural history, politics, and personal reference; and young adult and children's books. We do not represent poetry, picture books, or screenplays.
Sally Harding is a Literary Agent and co-owner of The Cooke Agency and Cooke International. Her list is largely (although not entirely) research-based non-fiction, and the more literary end of science fiction, fantasy, and crime. Rather than being restrained by the accustomed boundaries of geography or genre, she determines the channels through which each work will find its best audience. She is interested in developing careers (not just single works) with writers who are deeply engaged with their subject and their craft. This is not only about how they put words on a page, or the stories those words reveal, but the larger human questions and dilemmas the writer is trying to resolve through their work. Being both a Canadian and a New Zealander, she cheers loudly for both countries, until faced with Canada vs. All Blacks. She is on the board of the Vancouver Writers Fest and is a member of the Association of Authors’ Representatives. She is on Twitter: @SallyHardingTCA
