Who Made Stevie Crye?, subtitled A Novel of the American South, is a horror novel by American writer Michael Bishop. It was released in 1984 by Arkham House in an edition of 3,591 copies, and later in paperback by Headline. It was the author's first novel and third book published by Arkham House.
A 30th Anniversary Edition was published by Fairwood Press in August 2014, including a new introduction by Jack Slay and a new afterword by the author. It also reprints the full-page B&W illustrations by J. K. Potter which were originally commissioned for the Arkham House edition.
The story concerns Mary Stevenson Crye, a newly widowed housewife, who turns to freelance writing to provide for her family. Her typewriter, which is demonically possessed, involves her in a series of occult experiences, including with her dead husband, among other things.
