He's probably a little bit busy in his new transition from editor to agent, but you should take note of Doug Grad, who has created the newly-formed Doug Grad Literary Agency.
Strangely enough, Doug doesn't have a whole lot of information on his Web site regarding what topics he's looking for. It seems he is interested in just about all adult fiction and nonfiction topics. If you take a good look at his recent sales, it seems like they are mostly nonfiction items.
How to contact: Query him. If he is interested, he will request the full book proposal (for nonfiction submissions), or the first 50 pages (for fiction). Send e-queries to email@example.com.
