The JJLA states: “Media rights for the UK-based John Jarrold Literary Agency, which specialises in science fiction, fantasy and horror, will be represented from this date by The Gotham Group in Los Angeles, California. The Gotham Group is a multi-faceted management and production company, representing some of the most creative minds in Hollywood. Gotham boasts a roster of over 500 top directors, screenwriters, producers, authors, illustrators, and artists, as well as book and comic book publishers and animation studios. Gotham represents more source material from major publishers and comic book companies than any other entity, including works from such clients as Penguin Group, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins (U.S. & UK), Bloomsbury/Walker US, Dark Horse Entertainment, Houghton Mifflin/Harcourt, SAF Comics, and Com.x.
‘Iâ€™m delighted to have my clientsâ€™ rights represented by such a prestigious company,’ said John Jarrold, whose agency has over thirty books coming from major publishers in the UK and US in 2010. ‘My client Curtis Jobling (the creator of Frankenstein’s Cat and the forthcoming YA fantasy Wereworld series), introduced me to them, and we seemed to be a perfect fit. Iâ€™m looking forward to future conversations and deals.'”
