In 1971, veteran paperback editor, Donald A. Wollheim embarked on a venture that would change publishing history. He had an illustrious career but was frustrated that publishing had become "big business". So, he founded DAW Books, a small family-owned business. AND it was the first to be devoted to Science Fiction. In 1972 his first published book was Andre Norton's Spell of the Witch World and the company never looked back. Thirty years later, the company still stood as a family owned business. What better way to celebrate than to publish a 30th Anniversary Edition Collector Book? The stories in this book appear in chronological order, based on the first time the author was published by DAW. It begins with Challenge Chaos by Brian Stableford and continues with a story about the nature of reality by Brian W. Aldiss, a Merchanter story. From Tad Williams come a story about the "true" potential of the internet, and other featured authors include Timothy Zahn, Ian Watson, Kate Elliot and more. Wonderful gift book or collectible book for anyone.
