Richard Bozulich (born 1936) is an author and publisher of go books in English.

Bozulich was born in Los Angeles, California. He attended UCLA and in 1966 graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a BA in mathematics. Bozulich had worked his way through college by buying and selling highly technical used books and upon graduation decided to become a book publisher. He moved to Japan and in 1968 in partnership with Stuart Dowsey founded The Ishi Press, a book and magazine publishing company that primarily published books about the game of go.

Ishi Press' first few publications were translations of Japanese books such as Eio Sakata's The Middle Game of Go and Modern Joseki and Fuseki Vol. I and II but Bozulich soon began working with Japanese professional players, as well as principal collaborators James Davies and John Power, to produce original works in English. The first of these, Basic techniques of Go by Nagahara and Haruyama, was published in 1969. In 1973, Bozulich began work on a seven-volume set covering all the fundamentals of the game, The Elementary Go Series, with the publication of In the Beginning by Ishigure and Life and Death by Kosugi and Davies. By 1984, the set was complete, when Ishi Press published Nagahara and Bozulich's Handicap Go. Meanwhile, Bozulich continued to translate and publish Japanese material for the nascent Western go-playing community, selecting volumes such as Kageyama's Lessons in the Fundamentals of Go and Kage's Secret Chronicles of Handicap Go, and a series of books about basic opening strategies: The Power of the Star-Point ((Takagawa), The Chinese Opening: The Sure Win Strategy (Kato) and The 3-3 Point: Modern Opening Theory (Cho).

In 1977, the Japan Go Association ceased publication of Go Review, their English-language magazine. Working closely with Power, Bozulich has published a quarterly magazine ever since. Go World remains the only source in English for comprehensive analysis of top Japanese tournament games.

In 1982 Bozulich founded Kiseido Publishing Company, publishing Invincible: The Games of Shusaku, Power's biography and collection of the games of the most famous Japanese player from the 1800s. Kiseido became more active in the 1990s, when Bozulich produced two more multi-volume sets of instructional material: the five volume Mastering the Basics, and the ten volume Get Strong at Go series. Kiseido continues to publish other books as well, such as The Go Player's Almanac, The World of Chinese Go and An Introduction to Modern Fuseki: Korean Style.

Richard Bozulich has written or published more than one hundred books and magazine and newspaper articles about the game of go. He is the world's most prolific author of go books in English. Richard Bozulich is the publisher of Go World magazine. He had a regular go column in The Daily Yomiuri, Japan's largest English-language newspaper. He lives in Chigasaki, Japan and is a professor of mathematics, physics and chemistry at a local college. His father was from Zadar county, Croatia. Richard Bozulich has five children.
