Ye Yonglie (Chinese: 叶永烈; pinyin: Yè Yǒngliè, born 30 August 1940) is a Chinese writer of science fiction and biographies. A few of his stories have been translated into English in The Road to Science Fiction series and elsewhere. During the “Campaign Against Spiritual Pollution” his works were attacked and a story he wrote in 1985 was suppressed for suggesting AIDS had entered the country. As a biographer he has written on early figures in the People's Republic of China. He has also visited North Korea, and wrote a book The Real DPRK (真实的朝鲜) which was banned in that country and China.
