    The Pimlico Agency (Kay & Kirby McCauley)

    I know they represent some heavy-hitting SF/F writers, but they have almost no Web presence.

    Anyone with info?

    I did a quick search, found lots of names of authors they represent, especially one of the McCauleys. I'll try to find more, but they don't appear to have a website.

    Just wondering if anyone has any additional information on this agency, especially on Christopher Shepherd.

    According to Querytracker.net, none of their users have received a response from this agency. Probably not worth the stamp.

    My website, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ (yeah, seriously), Goodreads, Pinterest--it's getting ridiculous.

    I don't know much about them. From what I've heard, they at least at one time were agents for a number of big-time sf, fantasy, and horror authors, including Stephen King. I do seem to recall some news--many years ago--about King leaving the agency because they didn't file some important tax documents and almost got some of their clients into deep doo-doo with the IRS. I don't have any details about this, nor even if the stories were all true.

    However, I think they swing some weight with many editors and have some great clients.

    They would likely be an effective agency if you're good enough to get them to take you on.

    For what it's worth here's some stuff from P&E:
    no $ on both Kay & Kirby McCauley, http://www.anotherealm.com/prededitors/pealk.htm

    Kirby McCauley appears to be more an author than an agent. 5 books is listed under his name here: http://www.librarything.com/author/mccauleykirby

    Querytracker lists a Christopher Shepard as being with the Pimlico Agency, but I can't find any information on him on either P&E or Publisher's Marketplace. Does anybody here have any information on him?

    I queried agent Laura Rennert yesterday, and she's an author with a lot of books also, so that doesn't mean McCauley's not a serious agent; the lack of Web presence bothers me, however. To add to what JamesRobertSmith said, perhaps you have to know the right people to get your foot in the door. I haven't heard anything about King leaving McCauley's agency, but it could very well be.

    Kirby passed away in '14 (obit). Agency continues under Kay, although I'm not finding much activity after '13. She also dba Aurous, Inc.
