Homer Eon Flint (bornas Homer Eon Flindt; 1888 –1924) was an American writer of pulp science fiction novels and stories.

He began working as a scenarist for silent films (reportedly at his wife's insistence) in 1912. In 1918 he published "The Planeteer" in All-Story Weekly. His "Dr. Kinney" stories were reprinted by Ace Books in 1965, and with Austin Hall he co-wrote the novel The Blind Spot.

Reportedly he died[how?] as a result of an involvement in a bank robbery attempt. According to his granddaughter the only witness was himself a gangster.

His son was Max Hugh Flindt (1915-2004), co-founder of the ancient astronaut society who co-authored with Otto Binder Mankind – Child of the Stars in 1974, and in 2004 published Between the Apes and the Angels.[1]
