I have to say I like this trend, since it does seem to be a trend by now. I'm not sure if I'll be taking advantage of this one or not, but I'll certainly want to keep it in mind, especially if it goes on for a while!

I figured it can't hurt to share, for people to keep in their back pockets. :)

That's unusual. :o I understood UK was notorious for needing an agent. Maybe that's just film.

Maybe. Also, Tor is kind of known for being a rebel -- they were one of the first (if not the first) publishing houses to offer e-books without DRM.

Mid-October. It was the open thing you reported :p they changed the system so it's responses to everyone, but they didn't make the January 15th deadline.

I figured it was the other thing. I'm sure they got flooded with submissions. It couldn't hurt to wait a month and then query. :nod:

:lol: yeah, 4500. I think it'd only be necessary to query if they announced they were done.replying.
