Richard Bowes is an American author of science fiction and fantasy.

Richard Bowes was born in Boston in 1944. He attended school both in Boston and on Long Island, New York. In his third year, he took writing courses with Mark Eisenstein at Hofstra University. After graduation, Bowes moved to Manhattan where he has lived for the last thirty-eight years, doing the usual jumble of things that writers do in order to earn a living. He launched his Speculative Fiction writing career in the early 1980s and published novels Warchild, Feral Cell, and Goblin Market.

In 1992, Bowes began writing a series of semi-autobiographical stories narrated by Kevin Grierson. These stories were published primarily in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and later became the novel Minions of the Moon. One story, "Streetcar Dreams," won the World Fantasy Award for Best Novella in 1998. The novel itself won the Lambda Literary Award in 2000.

A short fiction collection, Transfigured Night and Other Stories, was published by Time Warner in 2001. It included the original novella, "My Life in Speculative Fiction." These stories plus recent material appeared in Streetcar Dreams and Other Midnight Fancies from England's PS Publishing in 2006.

In recent years, Bowes has written a series of stories about Time Rangers and the Gods, which have formed the mosaic novel From the Files of the Time Rangers, published September 2005 by Golden Gryphon Press. Two of the stories - novelettes "The Ferryman’s Wife" and "The Mask of the Rex" - both originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, were finalists for the prestigious Nebula Award, in 2002 and 2003 respectively. Other Time Rangers stories have appeared in Sci Fiction and Black Gate .

His current projects include a story cycle tentatively called "Dust Devils on a Quiet Street," about a group of writers in New York City before, during, and after 9/11. This includes the short story, "There's a Hole in the City" which won the storySouth 2006 Million Writers Award for Fiction.
