DAW Books is a professional publishing company founded in 1971 by Donald A. Wollheim, a science fiction fan who was a founding member of the Futurians in the 1930s. DAW was the first publisher to publish only science fiction and fantasy. It also published many books by writers who began their careers writing fan fiction. Marion Zimmer Bradley and Mercedes Lackey are just two of these authors.
