Officially bummed

Okay, so I knew finding an agent would be difficult, but I thought the difficult part would be getting them to ask for a manuscript, NOT finding someone (ANYONE) who is willing to consider reading a query for a fantasy! Gack! Yes, yes, I realize the market isn't strong for adventure and magic and elves, but come on! EVERY SINGLE AGENCY I looked up this evening has agents who either A) not accepting fantasy novels (although they used to) or B) not accepting unsolicited manuscripts. GRRRR.

I may have to speed up work on my urban fantasy. Apparently that's "hot" right now. But isn't it Grimm's fairy tales (or Shakespeare) that tells us the older sister should get married first otherwise bad things happen?!!?
