Ansible is an award-winning British newszine edited by Dave Langford, taking its title from a communications device featured in Ursula K LeGuin's 1966 science fiction novel Rocannon's World.

The first series (50 issues) ran from August 1979 (distributed at the third UK world sf convention) until August/September 1987 (coinciding with the fourth UK world sf convention); it was relaunched in October 1991 (resuming the original numbering) and currently appears monthly, usually on the first Thursday (issue #245 was published in December 2007). Although a limited quantity of hardcopies are distributed, most readers use the online version.
