Ed Wilson has been an agent at Johnson & Alcock since 2007.
He represents a diverse list of fiction and non-fiction, encompassing everything from new and debut writers to established, bestselling and award-winning authors.
In fiction, he looks for anything with originality and style, both literary and commercial: books with an imaginative setting, strong narrative voice and compelling premise. He is actively building a SFF list and is always on the lookout for books that transcend genre. High concept writing, intelligent crime and thrillers, crossover teen and YA should all be sent his way.
His non-fiction tastes cover sport, natural history, popular culture, intelligent and original graphics and infographics, and anything quirky. He is not currently taking on children's authors and does not represent poetry or scripts.
Ed also looks after the majority of the agency’s Estates, in conjunction with Andrew Hewson: these include Beryl Bainbridge, Dick Francis, William Trevor and Elizabeth Taylor.
