Innuuendo was a science fiction fanzine by Terry Carr and Dave Rike.

Innuendo was published in the mid 1950s in the U.S.A till 1960, when the fanzine ceased publication. After Terry Carr's death, issue 12, which he had begun when still alive, was published in 1990 by Jerry Kaufman.

Innuendo features writing by Greg Benford, Ron Bennett (Ploy), Carl Brandon, Carol Carr, Sidney Coleman, Calvin Demmon, Bill Donaho (Habakkuk), Dean Grennell (Filler, Grue), Arnie Katz (Vegas Fandom Weekly), Ray Nelson, Elmer Perdue, Tom Perry, Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons), Ted White, Walt Willis (Hyphen) and Susan Wood (Aspidistra).

Artwork was by Hannes Bok, Grant Canfield, Ronald Clyne, Cynthia Goldstone, Lee Hoffman (Quandry), Joy Kinney, Trina Robbins, Bill Rotsler, Dan Steffan (Boonfark), Steve Stiles, ATom (The ATom Anthology), and Bjo Trimble (Melange).

Innuendo frequently reprinted articles from old fanzines that the editors thought important to fan history; among these articles was writing by Charles Burbee, F. Towner Laney (The Acolyte), Jim Harmon, and others.

The article from Innuendo called "The Mind of Chow", by Charles Burbee, was reprinted in the fanzine yearbook, The Best of Fandom 1958.

Innuendo was the fanzine in which Terry Carr and Peter Graham presented "Carl Brandon, Jr." a fictitious fan of color, in order to address issues of race within the science fiction community. Real authors who wrote under the name Carl Brandon included Terry Carr, Bob Stewart, Dave Rike, Ron Ellik, Pete Graham, Miriam Carr, and Karen Anderson.

Later, fans created the Carl Brandon Society.

Terry Carr also co-published Klein Bottle from 1959 till 1960 with Miriam Carr, and went on to publish Lighthouse, from 1958 till 1968, and the one shot Entropy in 1964.
