John Anthony West (September 7, 1932 – February 6, 2018) was an American author, lecturer, guide, and proponent of the Sphinx water erosion hypothesis. Such erosion could only mean that the Sphinx was carved during or before the rains that marked the transition of northern Africa from the last Ice Age to the present interglacial epoch, a transition that occurred in the millennia from 10,000 to 5,000 BC.

His early career was as a copywriter in Manhattan and as a science fiction writer. He received a Hugo Award Honorable Mention in 1962.
