Maiden Voyage goes to HarperCollins

HarperCollins has bagged world rights to a title by Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson.

Non-fiction imprint Dey Street will publish simultaneously with HC US after the UK team’s publishing director Jack Fogg negotiated the deal with Adrian Sington at Kruger Cowne, Dave Daniel at Celebrity Speakers and Phantom Music Management.

The heavy metal band, formed in London in 1975, has sold over 90 million albums worldwide.

Its popularity surged after Dickinson rejoined the band in 1999 after a seven-year hiatus. Its most recent album, “Book of Souls”, hit number one in 40 countries and the group will be touring for the majority of 2016.
