  1. Thanks for the info on the 20 worst agents. Us wannabe novelists need to armed with as much information as we can get. It’s tough enough trying to get an agent who’s legit without having to filter out who’s legit and wh’s a faker. Thanks again. Navy (and Marines) rock!

  2. Richard Perich….are you from the Detroit area? Was your father Velibor? If so, we worked together at ANR Pipeline in the Publications department.
