Richard Delap (1942-1987) was a Canadian science fiction writer, editor, and reviewer. He began in science fiction fandom and was nominated for the 1970 Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer.[1] He edited Delap's Fantasy and Science Fiction Review for a number of years, and also rewrote film scripts in Hollywood from 1981 to 1986.[2]

He co-edited and did the initial work on The Essential Ellison, which his co-editors said "remains a testament to his talent and hard work."[2] His only work of fiction is the horror novel Shapes, which was co-written with Walter W. Lee.
