Alfred Elton van Vogt (Winnipeg (Manitoba, Canada), 26 april 1912 - Hollywood (Verenigde Staten), 26 januari 2000) was een van de grondleggers van de moderne sciencefiction.

In zijn boeken speelt psychologie een grote rol. Zijn roman 'Slan' (1940), waarin de hoofdrol vertolkt wordt door een jongetje dat opgejaagd wordt omdat hij over telepathische gaven beschikt, is hier een goed voorbeeld van. Een ander noemenswaardig boek is 'De reis van de Space Beagle', waarin het schip de Space Beagle centraal staat, dat naar voorbeeld van Charles Darwins Beagle, de ruimte exploreert op zoek naar vreemde intelligenties.

De Nul-A-trilogie, (gebaseerd op het werk van Alfred Korzybski) is bijzonder omdat Van Vogt hierin een wereld omschrijft waarin niet-aristoteliaans gedacht wordt, in tegenstelling tot de onze. Het eerste en volgens kenners beste deel verscheen in 1945.

In een verhaal uit 1932 omschrijft Van Vogt een wezen dat als twee druppels water lijkt op de vloeibare robot uit de film 'Terminator - judgment day' De scène waarin dit wezen zichzelf vloeibaar maakt om de vloer van een ruimteschip na te bootsen als hij hoort dat zijn slachtoffer er aan komt, deze vervolgens over hem heen laat lopen en zichzelf daarna achter de rug van zijn slachtoffer, naar diens gelijkenis omvormt om hem vervolgens te doden, komt wel zo erg overeen dat er geen twijfel over mag bestaan dat de schrijvers van genoemde film hier een klein eerbetoon uitgebracht moeten hebben.

Wish I had abandoned this one, but I kept waiting for it to turn around. The whole story is predicated on a series of inventions of incredible power that somehow haven't affected any other part of society. Guns with AI so sophisticated that they only fire in self-defense, but somehow there are still office buildings full of clerks? A machine that unerringly identifies morally upstanding people but the world government is run by a hereditary monarchy? It's entirely too ludicrous.
