    No, but to echo an old mushroom joke, he looks like a fun guy.

    What I could find on-line:

    The author he lists on his website (Adrian Magson) has deals with Severn House and Allison & Busby. The latter, at least, requires an agent to submit to.

    He's been in business as an agent since 2008 and, as far as I can tell, only has the sales of Magson's novels to show for it.

    Not much, but I hope it helps.

    Yeah, there didn't appear to be much. I suppose everyone has to start somewhere, though.

    I'm Adrian Magson and a client of David Headley (DHH literary Agency). He has more than me on his books. All I can say about him is he's straightforward, energetic and I like him, both as a person and an agent.

    By the way - apologies for not introducing myself as a newbie (I can see the site does that). I live in the UK, am a full-time writer with 7 novels published, a YA Ebook and 2 more paper novels imminent. Wrote for women's mags for many years (part-time), and tried lots of other things like plays, radio comedy and even poems (not good - gave up). Settled finally on crime novels, spy novels and short stuff.

    Thanks, Adrian. Can I ask if this agency has any interest in horror?

    Hi Adrian, welcome to the watercooler. How about popping over to the Newbie foruma and starting an intro thread where the folks there can give you a proper welcome

    For Seun and others, not sure about whether David takes horror or not, but he's often said he'll look at anything that's well-written. I'd suggest give him a try. He reads e/m submissions, btw. A
