(May 9, 1925 – December 23, 1980)

Kris Ottman Neville was an American SF writer who began publishing in 1949.

His most famous work, the 1951 novelette Bettyann (New Tales of Space and Time, Raymond J. Healy, ed.), is considered an underground classic of science fiction. Neville’s collaboration with Reginald Bretnor, “Gratitude Guaranteed” (F&SF, August 1953), inspired a 1950s fannish fad for pomes about Cuddlypets.

His published novels were The Mutants (1953) and The Unearth People (1964). Collections of his short fiction were Mission: Manstop (1971) and The Science Fiction of Kris Neville (1974), the latter edited by Barry N. Malzberg.

Neville lived most of his life in California. He was born in St. Louis.
