Mike Mitchell becomes Dedalus Life President

Mike Mitchell has been appointed Dedalus Life President and an editorial consultant to the Dedalus board.

Mike Mitchell's involvement with Dedalus stretches back to 1990 when he suggested we should publish a translation of The Architect of Ruins by Herbert Rosendorfer. We proposed instead he should translate The Angel of the West Window by Gustav Meyrink for us which was his first of his many translations for Dedalus published in 1991. We did of course publish his translation later of The Architect of Ruins. Mike was for many years our Europe editor and spent countless hours reading books in translation for Dedalus and shaped our translation list. Without Mike Mitchell's long involvement with Dedalus as a translator, editor and director Dedalus would not have become what it is today. He embodies better than anybody what is good about Dedalus. He is currently working on three books for Dedalus.
