Stacy Horn (born June 3, 1956, in Norfolk, Virginia) is an American author, businesswoman and occasional journalist. She grew up on Long Island, New York and received a B.F.A. from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Her graduate degree is from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, where she later taught a course called "Virtual Culture."

In 1989, after working in telecommunications, Horn founded Echo, a bbs-based online community that positioned her as one of the few prominent females in the early days of Internet culture. Her first book, Cyberville: Clicks, Culture and the Creation of an Online Town (Warner Books, 1998), describes the community that formed on Echo, the problems Horn encountered as Echo's final authority, and her observations about the nature of the virtual world. Through the 90s, she was often profiled and quoted in articles about life and business on the internet. Her book is still used in courses on the sociology of virtual communities.

The publication of her second book, Waiting For My Cats to Die: A Morbid Memoir (St. Martin’s Press, 2001), a memoir about her midlife crisis, revealing an unusual fascination with death, coincided with a series of commentaries for the NPR's All Things Considered, often reflecting that same fascination.

Her third book, The Restless Sleep: Inside New York City’s Cold Case Squad (Viking, 2005), in which she recounts the stories of four of New York's cold cases and profiles the detectives who investigate them, coincided with an increased public interest in cold cases, making her once again a frequent expert resource for journalists and a sometime commentator on issues touching on crime and murder.

Horn continues to run Echo. Her fourth book, Unbelievable: Investigations into Ghosts, Poltergeists, Telepathy, and Other Unseen Phenomena, from the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory, was published in 2009.
