Orville William Tuning (June 21, 1935 – April 18, 1982) [1][2] was an American author of science fiction and a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). He was reported to be close friends with authors Jerry Pournelle, Randall Garrett (SCA name: Randall of Hightower) and Robert A. Heinlein. Tuning was closely involved with the founders of the SCA.

Among his works was Fuzzy Bones, a posthumous sequel to H. Beam Piper's Little Fuzzy and Fuzzy Sapiens; this was written and published before the discovery and subsequent publication of the lost manuscript of Piper's Fuzzies and Other People.
