Fantasy-News was a science fiction newszine published in New York, U.S.A.

Fantasy-News was first published by James Taurasi in 1938. It is reported to have attained the largest circulation of any science fiction fanzine of its time.

In the 1940s it was published by Will Sykora. Associate editors were James Taurasi and Sam Moskowotz. One issue was a split zine with The Miscellany, edited by Gertrude Kuslan and her brother Louis Kuslan.

James Taurasi earlier published Cosmic Tales, and began a fanzine publishing group called Cosmic Publications under which a number of titles were released, including The Nucleus, and Different. Taurasi would go on to publish The Science Fiction Yearbook 1957, and Fantasy-Times, which won the first Hugo Award for Best Fanzine in 1955.
