F. Springer (15 January 1932 – 7 November 2011) was the pseudonym of Carel Jan Schneider, a Dutch foreign service diplomat and writer.

Schneider was born in Batavia, Dutch East Indies. He spent World War II in a Japanese internment camp,[1] and afterward lived and worked in New Guinea, New York, Bangkok, Brussels, Dhaka, Luanda, East Berlin (he was the next-to-last Dutch ambassador there[1]), and Tehran all of which have served as locations for the novels and stories which he has published.

His laconic style is reminiscent of F. Scott Fitzgerald or Graham Greene,[1] and he often adopts an ironic perspective on his often tragic subject matter, such as in Teheran, een zwanezang, a love story set against the background of the Iranian Revolution.
