(November 25, 1904 – March 26, 1978)

Amelia Reynolds Long was a Pennsylvania SF and mystery writer. She is remembered today mainly because one of her stories, "The Thought-Monster," was made into the 1958 MGM horror film Fiend Without a Face. She is known to some SF fans because she co-wrote the 1936 novel Behind the Evidence with SF personality William L. Crawford (under the combined pseudonym Peter Reynolds).

Long wrote under her full name but also used the bylines of Amelia R. Long, A. R. Long, Adrian Reynolds, Patrick Laing, Mordred Weir, and Kathleen Buddington Coxe (a pseudonym used by Long when she co-authored work with her friend Edna McHugh).

Long was involved in SF fandom around the time she was writing short stories for the pulps. She had a loc in Harry Warner’s Spaceways in February 1939. Her letters appeared in Astonishing Stories (October 1940 issue), Startling Stories (March, 1939) and "The Eyrie" of Weird Tales magazine (November 1931).
