New Agency Alert: The OnyxHawke Agency

Editor's Note: There's a new agency that opened several months ago I thought I would tell you about. I haven't met Mr. Kabongo, but I've looked over the site and he seems very legit. It's also a pleasure to see someone who specializes in sci-fi and fantasy - not usually popular topics with agents. Give his website a close look, as their are multiple ways to submit to him. Looking for: Primarily science fiction and fantasy.
