The Virginia Kidd Literary Agency is one of the longest
established science fiction specialized literary agencies in the world.
VKA embodies half a century of rich experience in the top end of the
science fiction and fantasy genres. Our client list
reads like a top notch "who's-who" of science fiction:
Gene Wolfe, Anne McCaffrey,
Ted Chiang, Alan Dean Foster and others set the bar very
Our authors have won Hugos, Nebulas, World Fantasy, Tiptree,
National Book Award, PEN Malamud, SFWA Grandmaster, Gandalf,
Locus Award, Margaret Edwards Award,
IAMTW Lifetime Achievement Award (Grand Master),
Rhysling Award, Author Emeritus SFWA, BSFA Award —
and more. We consistently represent the best of the best.
We welcome carefully crafted queries from prospective and published authors.
VKA is seeking quality, marketable fiction with an eye toward strong
character development and fresh storytelling. While our focus remains on
speculative fiction, we are happy to consider works beyond that if the
story is compelling. We consider SF/F, dark fantasy, historical fiction,
popular fiction and adventures. Cozy mystery and romance too. Overall,
the characters and their story are more important than the genre.
We'll only consider manuscript in Standard Industry Format, and we ask
that you give us a six week turnaround for our reply.
If you can offer extremely high quality work, and you prefer to send your query by post,
