We receive many requests to reproduce extracts from works by our clients in works written or edited by other authors. These are generally described as “permissions”. There is a minimum fee of £100 (plus VAT if applicable).

You may apply for permission via post to United Agents LLP, 12-26 Lexington Street, London, W1F 0LE or via email ( If at all possible, please address the enquiry directly to the assistant of the author’s agent as detailed on this website. 

Regrettably, however, we cannot accept telephone enquiries about permissions. Please note that although all requests are dealt with as quickly as possible, due to the enormous number of requests we receive it is important to apply as far ahead of your deadline as you can.

For all permissions not in the English language please contact
