Shirley Jackson (San Francisco, 14 de desembre de 19168 d'agost de 1965) fou una escriptora estatunidenca especialitzada en el gènere de terror. Va influir fortament en autors com Stephen King, Nigel Kneale i Richard Matheson.[1]

El seu relat més conegut és possiblement «The Lottery» (1948), que suggereix l'existència d'un tètric i estremidor submón en les petites ciutats de l'Amèrica profunda. El conte es publicà el 28 de juny de 1948 en The New Yorker i donà origen a centenars de commocionades cartes per part dels lectors.

La seva producció literària inclou sis novel·les, dos llibres autobiogràfics, nombrosos assajos, més de cent relats i unes quantes històries infantils.

L'escriptora americana no va rebre bones crítiques en vida. Els seus primers textos es van publicar en revistes sota el perfil d'escriptora ocasional, esposa i mare de quatre fills, que s'entretenia escrivint en les seves estones lliures.
