Steven Barthelme (born 1947) is the author of numerous short stories and essays. His published works include And He Tells the Little Horse the Whole Story, Double Down: Reflections on Gambling and Loss (with brother Frederick Barthelme), and The Early Posthumous Work (essays which originally appeared in The New Yorker, New York Times, Oxford American, Elle Decor, and other publications). His brothers Donald and Frederick also became notable authors. His father, Donald Barthelme, Sr., was a well-known Modernist architect in Houston.

He won Pushcart Prizes in 1993 and 2005, and in 2004 he won the Texas Institute of Letters Short Story Award for work published in Yale Review.[1] Stylistically, Barthelme is a realist and a modernist.[citation needed]
