Anthony Charles Hockley Smith (born October 31, 1935) is a British novelist and playwright who wrote the official novelization of The Dark Crystal, and later the official novelization of Labyrinth.

Smith ran into a disagreement with Jim Henson while writing the novelization. Smith disliked the Podlings and planned to have the cage containing them tumble off the cliff and send them plummeting to their deaths as Jen and Kira attempt to rescue them during the battle between the Landstriders and the Garthim. Henson found the change gratuitously cruel and refused to let Smith include it.[1]
