Wallace West ((1900-05-22)May 22, 1900 – (1980-03-08)March 8, 1980) was an American science fiction writer.


He was born in 1900.

He began publishing during 1927 with the story "Loup-Garou" in Weird Tales. The majority of West's work, which was published prior to the 1960s, was short fiction. His few novels, mostly published after World War II, were mostly re-workings of his pre-war short fiction.

He is credited with suggesting the plot to the Arch Oboler radio play Profits Unlimited (in Fourteen Radio Plays. Random House 1940).
