Jake "Buddy" Saunders (born 1947) is an American author and businessman.

Saunders started out in the world of fanzines, operating his own mail order service starting in 1961.[1] In the mid-1960s was a regular contributor (as an artist) to the seminal comic book fanzine Rocket's Blast Comicollector.

He co-authored A Voice and Bitter Weeping with Howard Waldrop, later expanded into the 1974 novel The Texas-Israeli War: 1999, as well as Time and Variance, with Waldrop and Steven Utley. His short story "Back to the Stone Age'" was nominated for a Nebula Award in 1976.

Saunders owned and operated Lone Star Comics, a chain of seven Texas comic book stores founded in 1977.[2] With the sale of the Lone Star comic book store chain in 2013, Mr. Saunders and his family now operate the online Lone Star Comics, www.mycomicshop.com.[3]
