"For two thousand years, the Church has guided the development of music, carefully legislating to fuse artistic talent and aesthetic beauty with the demands of the Faith." -- Richard Morris
Richard Ward Morris (1939–August 28, 2003), was an American author, editor, and poet.

He received his master's in physics from the University of New Mexico and his doctorate in physics from the University of Nevada, then moved to San Francisco, where he started the little magazine Camels Coming. In 1968, he started and became the executive director of the Committee of Small Magazine Editors and Publishers (COSMEP). His COSMEP newsletter guided classic little magazines and underground hippie tabloids right through the Vietnam War into the Ronald Reagan era. He published as well poetry, fiction and drama; his selected poetry, Assyrians, was published by The Smith in 1991.

Beginning in 1979, Morris became known to the wider world as the author of a series of mainstream science books. These texts were translated and published to good sales in dozens of countries. He still continued publishing small-press collections of poetry and drama, which were read mostly by his friends and peers.

He published more than 20 books in his lifetime, many of which were written to "explain the intricacies of science to the general public". His literary style and narrative talents made easy reading for otherwise heady and intellectual topics, bringing sometimes abstract scientific ideas to a level the common person could understand.

His final work, The Last Sorcerers: The Path from Alchemy to the Periodic Table, was published posthumously in 2003.
