DAW Books is an American SF and fantasy publisher, founded by Donald A. Wollheim and his wife Elsie Wollheim following his departure from Ace Books in 1971. The name of the company comes from Wollheim's initials (he was long known in fandom as "DAW".) Their daughter, Betsy Wollheim, took over management in 1985.

The company claims to be "the first publishing company ever devoted exclusively to science fiction and fantasy." The first DAW Book published was the 1972 short story collection Spell of the Witch World by Andre Norton.

It was "Spotlighted Publisher" at Norwescon XXIX, Norwescon XXXV and Norwescon 39.
