The Nova Trilogy, The Nova Epic or The Cut-up Trilogy is a name commonly given by critics to a series of three experimental prose novels by William S. Burroughs. These novels, like Naked Lunch, derive from The Word Hoard, a number of manuscripts Burroughs wrote in Tangiermarker, Parismarker and Londonmarker between 1953 and 1958.

Commenting on the trilogy in an interview, Burroughs said, "I am attempting to create a new mythology for the space age."

All three novels use the cut-up and fold-in technique that Burroughs invented in cooperation with artist Brion Gysin.

The novels in this trilogy are:
