But I'm still kind of trying to let it sink in. Let's back up a bit. I've written a pair of short stories, for a micropress's anthology, talked about on AW here (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20021) and here (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19924).

Anyway, the editor/publisher sent out a bunch of press releases, trying to snag a bite for the film rights, etc...

He got us the agent.

Ready.... ICM.

No, really, ICM signed the books for a six month contract in their Literary Division. That same ICM that has A-list talent and is one of the two biggest agencies in Hollywood. That ICM. They're exceptionally excited about the books, and the whole office had to agree before they offered.

So, how happy should I be right now? Really really really happy :)
