Many lit agents say they don't like them. They say, if it belongs in the novel, put it in the novel. They say it is stalling. They say it is writer insecurity, that people won't keep reading unless they are given some information right up front.
: I wrote a pretty long prologue at the start of my adventure novel, and one of the agents I sent it to told me to take it off. I did and she still didn't take it. But most of the adventure novels I read have a prologue, so why shouldn't mine? What does everybody here think?
