How The Food Chain Works?

Now that the ghost tour story is up at Baen's Universe, I'm querying new agents about the Big Book again. It turns out one good way of coping with slush pile anxiety is to have a slush pile of one's own.

Maybe next incarnation I'll be a better person. Meanwhile, as far short of bodhisattvahood as I am, I admit to indulging in schadenfreude. No matter what the agents think of my query, I bet I've got a couple of manuscripts in my own slush pile that appeal to me less.

I'd like to imagine I've targeted the queries correctly this time. One of the agents is specifically looking for sprawling, Dickensian books. Sprawl is one thing the Big Book has covered.
