New to the UK

My colleague in a UK department says it's legit, for things published with a publisher registered in the UK. "I get 200-300 pounds a year, on the basis of a few book reviews and a couple of chapters in collections."

As the first person says, it is legitimate and you can get a small amount of money each year. I don't seem to get quite as much as the reported amount in the comment, and I've published several books and quite a few journal articles, but it's still nice to get a couple of hundred pounds a year. Maybe I'm doing something wrong and can get more. Either way, it definitely seems worth doing.
