Dedalus Books is a British publishing house specializing in European literature and managed by Eric Lane. As stated on their website, Dedalus specializes in "its own distinctive genre, which we term distorted reality, where the bizarre, the unusual and the grotesque and the surreal meld in a kind of intellectual fiction which is very European."

Established on November 30 1983 with the publication of three novels (including Robert Irwin's The Arabian Nightmare), Dedalus publishes novels and anthologies, featuring both contemporary and historical European works. Dedalus publishes both translations and original English language works.

Dedalus is partially funded by the Arts Council of England.
