Australian SF/Humour writer Simon Haynes has joined the John Jarrold Literary Agency.

'Having published a number of humorous writers,' said John Jarrold, 'I was taken by Simon's storytelling and the fact that he really likes his characters. Together with a great sense of wit, that makes him a winner in my view.'

John Jarrold has run three science fiction and fantasy imprints in the UK since 1988 - Orbit Books, Legend Books (Random House) and Earthlight (Simon and Schuster) - and edited many well-known authors.

And thanks ;-)

Well done! If they're published in the UK we should be able to get them in Ireland too, so I'll look out for them!

Thanks for all the thanks. Much appreciated ;-)

Obviously the whole point of getting an agent is to get published, but it's great just to have someone else on the team.

I live in Perth, Western Australia, the most remote capital city on planet Earth, and believe me when I say I need all the help I can get.

I understand the Australian market is kind of squeaky tight these days, too.

John should do you well, congrats.
