Homer Eon Flint (born as Homer Eon Flindt; 1888 –1924) was an American writer of pulp science fiction novels and short stories.

He began working as a scenarist for silent films in 1912 (reportedly at his wife's insistence). In 1918, he published "The Planeteer" in All-Story Weekly. His "Dr. Kinney" stories were reprinted by Ace Books in 1965, and with Austin Hall he co-wrote the novel The Blind Spot.

He reportedly died[clarification needed] as a result of an involvement in a bank robbery attempt. According to his granddaughter the only witness was a gangster.

His son was Max Hugh Flindt (1915-2004), the co-founder of The Ancient Astronaut Society. With Otto Binder, he co-authored Mankind – Child of the Stars in 1974. In 2004 Max published Between the Apes and the Angels.[1]
