About Ed Wilson

Ed Wilson has been an Agent with Johnson & Alcock since 2007, and a Director since 2011. He is currently building his client list, and is on the look out for original and stylish fiction. He wants to be grabbed from the first page, and transported by your writing.

Ed’s list covers everything in fiction; from award-winning literary novels to bestselling commercial crime/thrillers; books set in the deep past, and in the distant future; books to make you laugh, and to make you cry; writing for children and adults; the finest wrought poetry to the most beautiful of graphic novels.

Genre-wise, he’s actively looking for SFF, or books with an SFF element; in particular anything high concept, with a strong premise and a distinctive voice. Literary fiction needs to be unique, either in tone, structure, perspective or voice. Crime and thrillers should do something fresh and exciting with the genre. He is not looking for romance, chick-lit, or saga fiction.
