Edgar Watson Howe was an American novelist and newspaper and magazine editor in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was perhaps best known for his magazine, E.W. Howe's Monthly. Howe was well traveled and known for his sharp wit in his editorials.

In 1877 Howe established and edited the Atchison, Kansas, newspaper Globe, which he continued for twenty-five years, retiring in 1911.

Howe's most famous novel is Story of a Country Town. A 1919 edition of his Ventures in Common Sense featured a foreword by celebrated American writer (and cynic) H.L. Mencken.

Howe's daughter was the novelist Mateel Howe Farmer.
