Steven Popkes is an American science fiction writer living in the Boston area, known primarily for his short fiction. His first story, "A Capella Blues", was published in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine in May 1982. In the late 1980s, he was involved in the Future Boston collaboration, a project where a number of Boston area science fiction writers contributed stories set in a common future, where the city of Boston is slowly sinking underwater. One of his more acclaimed stories, "The Egg", (Asimov's, January 1989) is set in the future Boston history, and was later incorporated into his short novel Slow Lightning (1991).

His other novel is Caliban Landing (1987).
