Ross Rocklynne (1913-1988) was the pen name used by Ross Louis Rocklin, an American science fiction author active in the Golden Age of Science Fiction.

Born in 1913 in Ohio, Rocklynne was a regular contributor to the science fiction pulps. He was a professional guest at the first World Science Fiction Convention in 1939. Despite his numerous appearances and solid writing, Rocklynne never quite achieved the fame of his contemporaries Robert A. Heinlein, L. Sprague DeCamp, and Isaac Asimov. His most well known story is probably "The Men and the Mirror," first published in 1938.

Rocklynne partially retired from writing in the late 1950s, but made a notable return in the 1970s when his novelette "Ching Witch " was included in Harlan Ellison's original anthology, Again, Dangerous Visions (1972). "Ching Witch " was later nominated for a Nebula award.

This volume contains an annotated bibliography of Ross Rocklynne's work. It features an introduction by Arthur Jean Cox, plus an index.
