      Here's what the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America says about agents:

      http://www.sfwa.org/writing/agents.htm

      Bottom line: you don't need an agent to get an editor to buy your book, and
      no agent can help you sell a book editors don't want to buy. A _good_
      agent can tell you what sorts of things editors, and which editors, are
      buying. But an agent's main function is to negotiate the contract, after
      the editor makes an offer. You can get one then. To try to sell a book,
      send it to editors, who keep insisting they're looking for good stuff in
      the slushpiles.
