The DAW Science Fiction Reader is an anthology of science fiction stories, edited by Donald A. Wollheim. It was first published in paperback by DAW Books in July, 1976. It was the 200th title from DAW, and was intended to mark that milestone by showcasing the work of some of the publisher's most popular authors. The title consciously reprised that of the Avon Science Fiction Reader, a short-lived digest-sized magazine Wollheim had edited while employed by Avon Books in the 1950s.
The book collects seven works by various science fiction authors, including a novel by Andre Norton and novellettes and short stories by the remaining authors, together with a general introduction by the editor and an introduction to the Norton piece by its author.
