Brady McReynolds

Brady is the C.O.O of the JABberwocky Literary Agency, and works closely with Joshua to manage the day-to-day operations of the business and its employees. He was brought on in 2012 as the Foreign Rights Manager after having worked in the publicity department of Penguin’s Berkley and NAL imprints. Before then he interned at Algonquin Books in Chapel Hill, NC.

Growing up in rural Georgia and North Carolina, he started reading books (especially science-fiction and fantasy) at an early age because there was little else to do. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he double majored in Communication Studies and Sociology, making him the ultimate overseas marketing machine. An avid Tarheel basketball fan, Brady loves only lighter shades of blue and goes into reclusion every March.

 

What I’m looking for

Adult Science-Fiction: space opera in the vein of Ian M. Banks’ Culture series, military SF like Campbell’s the Lost Fleet, near-future tales like Cixin’s Three Body Problem, and flat-out weird like Borne by VanderMeer.

Adult Fantasy: from epics like Brandon Sanderson’s the Stormlight Archive to one-offs such as Joe Abercrombie’s The Heroes and pretty much everything high and low in between.

Non-Fiction: Anything with a gripping topic and a compelling voice.
