Grue was a science fiction fanzine by Dean Grennell.

Grue featured multi colored silk screened covers and was otherwise mimeographed, using the Gestetner. First published int eh 1950s, it was also a Fantasy Amateur Press Association publication.

Dean Grennell describes picking his title: "In casting about for a fanzine title, I considered several: STELLAR STORIES, FIASCO, and GRUE were three I kept coming back to. I asked the advice of friend-and-mentor Bob Silverberg and he opined that either FIASCO or GRUE would act as a deadly blight on a fanzine. Despite this, perhaps even because of it, I clung to GRUE as a title."

Contributors of writing included Mal Ashworth, John Berry, James Blish, Robert Bloch, Redd Boggs (Sky Hook), Les and Es Cole, Harlan Ellison (Science Fantasy Bulletin), Chuck Harris (Hyphen), Gerald Page (Si-Fan), Robert Silverberg (Spaceship), Bob Tucker (Le Zombie) and Andy Young and Jean Young.

Contributions of artwork were by Ron Fleshman, Damon Knight, Bill Rotsler and the editor.
