* Capital Literary Agency (formerly American Literary Agents of Washington, Inc.)
* Barbara Bauer Literary Agency
* Benedict & Associates (also d/b/a B.A. Literary Agency)
* Sherwood Broome, Inc.

Stylus Literary Agency (formerly ST Literary Agency)
Writers Literary & Publishing Services Company (the editing arm of the above-mentioned agencies)
* Martin-McLean Literary Associates

* The Robins Agency (Cris Robins)
* Michele Rooney Literary Agency (also d/b/a Creative Literary Agency and Simply Nonfiction)
* Southeast Literary Agency
* Mark Sullivan Associates
* West Coast Literary Associates (also d/b/a California Literary Services)

And then, the context. Read all about why I've posted the list here, and please feel free to reproduce it. The more people who can get this list out, the more ridiculous we can make Absolute Write's ISP look.

Of your 20 worst agents, you fail to answer one question. Why are they the worst? As a writer and doing business in another field, fees are apart of life. Is this the only reason these agents are the worst? Are there any other reasons?
If you're a writer, then fees are only a part of life on a lower level (photocopying, postage, etc). Otherwise, your agent should only take a percentage when he or she makes a sale for you. Follow the link I supply at the bottom of the post for, as I say, context.
