In my hunt for an agent, I must have spent hours upon hours combing through databases and literary agent websites to find the best possible agents to query. I've used multiple platforms such as Predators and Editors, AgentQuery, Manuscript Wish List, Publisher's Marketplace, and interviews of specific agents to make sure that they are worth querying. I've compiled a list of agents that I have researched for my own query. Below is a list that should help you in your own search.
NOTE: One should always read and make sure that these agents represent what you are specifically querying. These agents do represent more than just Historical Fiction as well.
