Dan Morgan is an English science fiction writer and a professional guitarist, mainly active as a writer from the early 1950s through the mid-1970s. In addition to his fiction, he has written two manuals relating to his musical profession.

Morgan is best known for his "Sixth Perception" novels featuring a group of characters possessed of psychic powers; the three "Venturer Twelve" space operas, co-authored with his colleague John Kippax (a fourth was written by Kippax alone); and the somewhat tongue-in-cheek novel The Richest Corpse in Show Business.[1]
