Book Citations

It seems that almost every other day we are getting some big-time publisher’s legal secretary emailing us to get written permission faxed back to them to allow an article written by one of our authors to be included in their next paperback or hard-cover book.

Since we’ve never discussed this publicly, here’s our policy on these requests: We deflect these requests directly to the author of the article in question as that is their (the authors) decision as to whether they want their article used as a source or citation for a book excerpt, and all of the legal obligations that the permission creates.
