Nova Express is a 1964 novel by William Burroughs, whose plot cannot easily be described. It features Burroughs' cut-up method of enfolding snippets of different texts into the novel, including T. S. Eliot's "The Waste Land", among others. It is the third in The Nova Trilogy formed by The Soft Machine, The Ticket That Exploded, and Nova Express. Naked Lunch is seen as a prequel to these.

Nova Express was nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1965.
