Literary agency Johnson & Alcock has acquired Fox Mason, the literary agency set up by Ben Mason in 2010, for an undisclosed sum.
Johnson & Alcock is taking on the liability for Mason’s 20 authors as well as his employee Becky Thomas, who joins Johnson & Alcock as an associate agent.
Mason, who was shortlisted for The Bookseller’s agent of the year award in 2013, is selling his agency to move to San Francisco to pursue new opportunities.
Anna Power of Johnson & Alcock, said: “We’ve long admired Ben’s literary taste and the vision and energy with which he’s built his thriving agency. We’re delighted to be expanding Johnson & Alcock as well as continuing with representation of so many of the brilliant Fox Mason authors.”
