Allen & Unwin report Wilbur Smith deal

Some exciting news overnight from our UK agency partner, Bonnier Zaffre.  In one of the biggest deals in publishing history, the company has acquired world rights to eight new books by Wilbur Smith and 34 backlist titles.  The deal means Allen & Unwin will sell and distribute Wilbur Smith in the ANZ market from January 2018.
Allen & Unwin CEO, Robert Gorman, says, “we are delighted to welcome Wilbur Smith to Allen & Unwin in Australia and New Zealand.  We look forward to working with Wilbur to cement his place as one of the giants of international fiction.”
