As many of you know, the Ralph Vicinanza Literary Agency was the premier SF/F agency in the world. Everyone was saddened when Ralph Vicinanza himself died suddenly last September. SFWA reports "Following the passing of Mr. Vicinanza, the two remaining agents in the company have left the agency and the executors of the Vicinanza estate have chosen not to engage in further active agency." They recommend authors consult the SFWA Grievance Committee to deal with various issues this has brought up. If you are affected by this: good luck!
