Axe is a science fiction fanzine by Larry Shaw (1924-1985) and Noreen Shaw (1930-2005).

Published in the U.S.A in the 1960's, Axe was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Fanzine in 1962.

Axe began life in Staten Island, New York, in April 1961, as a newssheet publicizing the WAW Fund to bring Walt Willis and Madelaine Willis to the U.S.A. to the 1962 Worldcon, the 10th Anniversary of their first trip to the U.S.A. It also included relevant fan news, and after the Willis Find was a success, the editors decided to keep publishing it as a general interest fanzine after moving to Evanston, Illinois.

Contributors included William Atherling (James Blish), fanzine reviews by Terry Carr (Lighthouse), Sid Coleman, fanzine reviews by Richard Lupoff (Xero), movie reviews by Bhob Stewart, and Walt Willis.
