In your Paper, scissors...rock post, you mentioned that larger novels are a bit easier to sell if they are fantasy novels. Can you explain why that is? I know you don't represent fantasy writers, but I'm hoping that you can enlighten me on this subject.
I think SFF lends itself to sagas. Authors are more free to invent things in SFF than any other genre so there are more possibilities. I mean, Nancy Drew is limited by the law of gravity but Robert Heinlein is free to tinker with it.
I can think of no other genre that has such long running stories as SFF. Diana Gabaldon is up to what now? 6? And the Dune franchise..10? And George RR Martin? Yikes. And those are just the ones I know..and I know NOTHING.
Those who read the form and have ideas, please, comment!
