Eugene Poinc (April 20, 1930 - July 23, 2002), born Eugene Jerome Poinc, was an artist, palm reader, and magician.
Poinc was a boyhood friend of Milt Larsen when he came to know Larsen's father, William Larsen, Sr., publisher of Genii magazine. As a result, he began doing illustrations and writing articles for the magazine. His writing expanded to other magazines, television shows (with emphasis on educational specials), and films, including the Katharine Hepburn feature, "Olly Olly Oxen Free," based on his own novel of the same title.
