Agents: recommended research sites

There are so many people out there claiming to be literary agents. How do you tell the ethical ones from those who are misguided, ineffectual or straight out intending to rip you off?

I've gathered together a list of resouces as recommended by fellow agent hunters and resources. This does not include the contact details of any individual agents. Please email me if you have any additions/suggestions.

Blogs from agents: updated 24th February 2007

Please note, I am not specifically recommending these agents. Some of them do not deal with speculative ficition, and you should always research agents carefully before approaching them. Their blogs give you an insight into their professional lives.
