Embelyon was a science fiction fanzine by Lee Anne Lavell and Jim Lavell.

The first issue of Embelyon appeared in May 1970, followed by issue 2 in June, and issue 3 in August 1970. Issue 4 came out in November of 1971. It was published in Indiana, U.S.A.

According to Lee Ann Lavell, writing in the August 2008 issue of Time and Again, # 5, the title came from the book The Dying Earth by Jack Vance, "As a side note, the title of one of the fanzine I published, Embelyon, as well as the name of one of my cats, Chun (the Unavoidable), were taken from that book."

The article "Against Modest Proposals" by Jim Lavell, with illustrations by Jim, which had originally appeared in issue 4, was later reprinted in Pixel #1 in August 2006 by Dave Burton.

Lee Ann Lavell had previously published the fanzine Indiana Fantasy with Ray Beam in 1952 and also the fanzine Space Cage in the 1960s.
