Profile Summary

There is very little information publically available on Juri. He is the Chairman of Dedalus Publishing, an independent publisher in the UK running since 1983. They work to promote homegrown talent across Europe as well as translating many European titles, with the support of the Arts Council England. The publisher takes unsolicited submissions but notes on their site that given the size of their business, they only take on a maximum of three new projects per year.

Looking at the full catalogue for Dedalus publishing will give anyone insight into the publisher, and Juri Gabriel's, taste. To set themselves apart from major commercial publishers, Dedalus focuses on literary fiction and non-fiction with a genre they coined themselves: 'distorted reality'. They are interested in the bizarre, dark, surreal, grotesque, and intellectual. Mainly dealing with fiction, in both original publications and translations, they also publish literary non-fiction 'concept books'.

Juri prefers to receive any submissions via post. Including an envelope with return postage paid is essential if you wish to receive feedback. Given Juri and Dedalus' limited output each year, it is important you research their current titles to see if your work falls into their preferences.
