(July 24, 1907 – September 5, 1981)

Lee Brown Coye was an American artist. He is probably best remembered for his black-and-white illustrations for pulp magazines and horror fiction, but he produced a variety of works in other media.

His fame as a genre illustrator developed as a result of his drawings for three horror anthologies edited by August Derleth in the early 1940s, Sleep No More, Who Knocks, and The Night Side. That led to work for Weird Tales.

In the 1960s, Coye's work appeared in such SF magazines as Fantastic and Amazing. Luis Ortiz wrote a biography, Arts Unknown: The Life & Art of Lee Brown Coye (Nonstop Press, 2005).
