Simon Mason (born Sheffield, England, 1962) is an English author of juvenile and adult fiction. Mason's best-known adult book, The Great English Nude, was nominated for several prizes, but narrowly missed out.

After completing the Rough Guide, Mason is expected to continue with his long term book, The High Priestess Of Love at 40.
