I poached this list that AQ Crew compiled and posted over on the old site. Too good to lose! If we are missing someone, or someone has left the business, add a reply.

AQ Crew also recommends cruising their account as an easy way to find agents, publishers and more great folks to follow on Twitter. (http://twitter.com/agentquery)
