Adam Wiśniewski-Snerg (January 1, 1937 - August 30, 1995) was a Polish science fiction author. He was born in Płock, Poland.

Although unpopular during his life, after his suicide he became recognized as one of the most significant authors of Polish SF. His novel Robot, which contains a theory about lesser and greater entities, was dubbed "the most valuable Polish SF publication of years 1945-1975".[citation needed]
