"Nightwings" is a science fiction novella written by Robert Silverberg, originally published in 1969. It is set in a far-future Earth where humanity has spread out across the stars and encountered various alien civilizations.

The story follows a trio of characters: Avluela, a woman of the Nightwings, a group of pilgrims who travel the skies seeking signs of an impending apocalypse; Roquen, a former soldier who now serves as Avluela's protector; and Joaz Banbeck, a historian who joins them on their journey. Together, they travel through the ruins of ancient civilizations and encounter strange and enigmatic alien races.

"Nightwings" explores themes of identity, memory, and the search for meaning in a vast and mysterious universe. It is renowned for its lyrical prose, rich world-building, and evocative exploration of the human condition. The novella won the Hugo Award for Best Novella in 1969 and is considered one of Silverberg's most accomplished works.
