Charles Beaumont (n. ,[1][2][3][4][5] Chicago, SUA – d. ,[1][2][3][4] Woodland Hills[*], SUA) a fost un scriitor american de ficțiune speculativă, cel mai renumit pentru povestirile sale științifico-fantastice și de groază sau pentru scenariile unor episoade ale serialului TV clasic Zona crepusculară ca "The Howling Man", "Miniature", "Printer's Devil" sau "Number Twelve Looks Just Like You". A scris scenariile unor filme ca 7 Faces of Dr. Lao, The Intruder sau The Masque of the Red Death. Romancierul Dean R.
