Khatru was a science fiction fanzine by Jeffrey D. Smith.

Khatru was published in the 1970s.

In 1975, Khatru editor Smith began the "Khatru Symposium of Women in Science Fiction", which took place in the mail over a seventh month period, and was published in a double issue ( 3 & $) in November. The participants were Suzy McKee Charnas, Samuel R. Delany, Viginia Kidd, Ursula Le Guin, Vonda N. McIntyre, Raylyn Moore, Joanna Russ, James Tiptree, Jr., Luise White, Kate Wilhelm, and Chelsea Quinn Yabro, and the editor.

Contributors to other issues included Jeffrey Frane (Hedgehog), and Angus Taylor. Taylor's essay in issue 1, "Reactionary Ideology in Science Fiction" has been noted as influential.

Contributors of art included Grant Canfield, Phil Foglio, Jeffrey Frane, Mark Gerson and William Rotsler.

Also included were interviews with musician Jon Anderson, and writer Dick Francis and researcher Mary Francis.
