Rick has joined the Martin Literary Management agency to represent speculative fiction authors, including science fiction, fantasy, horror, and magical realism.

Discovering Speculative Fiction Authors

Before joining Martin Literary Management, Rick was editor-in-chief at Uproar Books, where he worked closely with debut authors to edit and launch award-winning science fiction and fantasy novels.

Wish List

Characters, themes, plot. In that order. Rick wants to see genuine emotion and meaningful struggles. And maybe a dragon or spaceship, too. (But mostly the genuine and meaningful stuff.)

What authors say about working with Rick

“Rick is an exceptional editor who understood my writing and knew exactly what it needed to make it shine. His feedback and suggestions helped strengthen my book and were delivered with encouragement and care. Not only does he have an eye for good storytelling, but Rick is also professional and lovely to work with.” Trudie Skies, author of The Cruel Gods: The Thirteenth Hour, Sand Dancer, and Fire Walker

“Rick has all the qualities that I want in an editor. He’s a good communicator. He’s a thoughtful reader who understands language. He sees ambiguities and implications in my words that I might have missed. And maybe most importantly, he is relentless in pointing out those “darlings” that I have to kill before I can really call a book ‘finished.’ Highly, highly recommended.” Armond Boudreaux, author of The Way Out and The Two Riders

“It was great working with Rick Lewis on Worlds of Light & Darkness. The ease of working with Rick and his unwavering support made the entire experience a success on many levels.” Scot Noel, founder & publisher of DreamForge magazine and author of Stellar Glory
