    Dorian Literary Agency

    Has anyone had dealings with this agency? I can't find a website, just this:

    http://www.authoradvance.com/agencie...ary-agency-dla

    And this hasn't been updated in a fair while.

    Dorothy Lumley read the full of my first novel twice. I know some other people who've sent her stuff and she has replied with insightful comments. I also know a couple of people represented by her. She occasionally attends FantasyCon.

    For UK agents, WritersServices is a good place to check: http://www.writersservices.com/agent...n_Literary.htm

    Searching on her name finds some clients, i.e. http://www.janejackson.net/links.html.

    My impression is that she's an established pre-internet agent who doesn't need a website in order to find clients. Too high an online profile can be a double-edged sword - it just attracts the hoi-polloi

    Doing some research and Dorothy's name came up. Found this on QT that says she passed away earlier this year:
