Massimo Lo Jacono (born 1937) is an Italian science fiction and fantasy writer.[1]

In 1963 he was one of the editors of the science fiction magazine Futuro. In the first issue of the magazine, he published the story "L'ultima finzione di Basilide" under a pseudonym. The story was greatly appreciated by Argentine writer J. Rodolfo Wilcock, who determined to show it to Jorge Luis Borges.

Lo Jacono was an active force in the science fiction field mostly in the 1960s: apart from those published in Futuro, his stories appeared, often under the aliases Megàlos Diékonos and M. J. Mauritius, in the Italian edition of Galaxy, in Oltre il Cielo, in the anthologies Interplanet, and in various newspapers.
