Indiana fantasy was a science fiction fanzine by Ray Beam (1932-2012).

Indiana Fantasy was released in the 1950s in Indiana, U.S.A.

Contributors of writing included David H. Keller.

Ray Beam won the Science Fiction Hall of Fame Award and the Sam Moskowitz Archive Award and was a Guest of Honor at several conventions.

He was also co-author of one of the early 'filk' song (Science Fiction folk song). As Lee Gold writes in her 1997 essay "An Egocentric and Convoluted History of Early "Filk" and Filking", "At the 1952 Worldcon, "everyone joined in 'Glory, How We Hate Ray Bradbury' (to the tune of 'John Brown's Body') during the ball." (Also known as "The Bradbury Hate Song," this was written by Ray Beam, Jack Natkin, Lewis Forbes, Jerry Hunter and probably others. It appeared in Shapiro's STF & FSY Songbook and was later reprinted in a Pelz Filksong Manual.)"
