    I'm curious about this comp question, again, probably b/c SFFPIT is tomorrow. So I went to twitter and searched 'comp titles' #askagent

    and the opinions are all over the board from doesn't matter to really important! Some agents want them before the hook, some don't say, and opinions on how recent and how big also vary.

    Most (not all) twitter-active agents seem newer to the game, and I have no idea if this matters or skews 'what to do.'

    I will say this--I've discovered some great new fiction by forcing myself to the library every six months (whether I want to or not!) to review new titles in search of comps.
