Steve Moore (11th June 1949 to 16th March 2014) was a comics writer, author, occultist and longtime editor of The Fortean Times, amongst other things. His work in comics began at Odhams and later included writing Nick Fury, Hulk, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Ant Man for Marvel UK. He also penned various Doctor Who-related strips including the Time Witch; Abslom Daak, Dalek Killer, Star Tigers and Kroton the Cyberman (those last three co-created with frequent collaborator Steve Dillon) for Marvel UK's Doctor Who Magazine in its early incarnations as Doctor Who Weekly and Doctor Who Monthly.

Moore wrote Axel Pressbutton, Zirk, Ektryn and Father Shandor for Warrior (under the alias Pedro Henry). For 2000 AD, meanwhile, he scripted Tharg's Future Shocks (a format he created), Dan Dare, Red Fang, Valkyries, Rick Random, Judge Dredd, Agent Rat, Past Imperfect and Tales of Telguuth. He also contributed to A1, amongst other titles.

Steve was a longtime friend of (and mentor to) Alan Moore (no relation), who described him as his "oldest and dearest friend." He wrote Young Tom Strong and Jonni Future for Alan's America's Best Comics line, and the novelisation of V for Vendetta. Much of his 2000 AD and Warrior work was reprinted for the US market by Eagle Comics/Quality Comics and Eclipse Comics, and he scripted the Marvel Comics adaptation of the James Bond movie Octopussy. Later work included Hercules for America's Radical Comics. At the time of his death, aged 64, Steve was collaborating with Alan Moore on The Moon and Serpent Bumper Book of Magic. He had spent many years caring for his brother, who had motor neurone disease.
