    Many thanks James. I was trying to find more about Mr.Drew since his agency has been around since 1962. Much to my dismay, I could not find anything on the sales he has made. I searched http://anotherealm.com/prededitors, www.amazon.co.uk, http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo...ATH=Brian+Drew
    I think I'll keep this agency at the bottom of my list.

    Does the name of the agent come up on bookstore searches then? Wouldn't you be better to check publishers market place and agents query etc? Although as he's a UK agent his sales might not come up. In any case it looks like he's more of a theatrical agent: http://www.ericchappell.co.uk/plays.html he's mentioned as the person to contact about rights

    AFAIK Agent Query does not cover UK agents and Publishers Marketplace only a few

    I'll second the notion he's a script/screen agent. All the directories he's listed in are dramatic, not literary: http://books.google.com/books?oe=utf...G=Search+Books

    I clicked on his website link on Writers and Agents and it came up with a realtor in South Florida

    Sorry that should be Writers and Artists.

    His site is bryandrewltd.com (although it has yet to go live).

    Which listing is "Writers and Agents", BTW?

    Ah! I was 95% sure that's what you meant, but I'm always on the lookout for new listings.

    Mr. Drew passed away late last year (obit). No sign the agency continued.
