Ruth Amelia Berman (born 15 November 1942; age 77) is a science fiction and fantasy author, who wrote the short story "Visit to a Weird Planet, Revisited" and co-wrote the story "The Face on the Barroom Floor" for the 1978 anthology, The New Voyages. She started out as a Star Trek fan writer, publishing in numerous fanzines during the 1960s and 1970s.

A noticeable fan publication she contributed to as publisher and editor, was Inside Star Trek, a by Gene Roddenberry officially endorsed fanzine, which was published during the production of the Original Series, and for which Berman conducted several interviews with behind-the-scenes production staffers and actors, including:

When Inside Star Trek folded in June 1969, Berman immediately started a new Star Trek fanzine, T-Negative, that ran for 35 issues from 1969 until 1979. [1]

Berman received the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Science Fiction Writer in 1973.
