Xu Zhonglin (traditional Chinese: 許仲琳; simplified Chinese: 许仲琳; died 1560) was a Chinese writer who lived in the Ming dynasty. He is best known as the author of the novel Fengshen Yanyi. He was born in Nanjing. Some say that Xu wrote the novel for a trousseau for his daughter. His pseudonym might be "Zhongshan Yisou" (鍾山逸叟), which literally means "a carefree old man living in Mount Zhong". The name appears in Chapter 2 of Fengshen Yanyi.
