Jack Wodhams (born 3 September 1931 in Dagenham, London, England, United Kingdom) is a science fiction writer who has lived in Australia since 1955.[1]

He was first published in Analog Science Fiction and Fact in 1967 with the story There Is a Crooked Man. He is largely known for the kind of "problem oriented" stories that Analog itself is known for. These stories have been called "generally clever and often ingenious"[2] and good on military matters,[3] but occasionally criticized as facetious. From 1970 to 1982 he was nominated for the Ditmar Award several times.
