Loki Issue #2 (Summer 1948), cover art by Jerri Bullock

Loki was a science fiction and weird stories fanzine by Gerry de la Ree and Genevieve K. Stephens.

Loki was published in the 1940s in New Jersey, U.S.A. The first issue, appearing in Spring 1948, featured Eando Binder, Lin Carter (Spaceteer), David H. Keller, Dorothy Quick, Richard Shaver (The Shaver Mystery Magazine), and Stanley Weinbaum.

Mike Deckinger, writing in the April 2007 el about Rog Phillips' fanzine review column "The Club House" in Amazing Stories, mentions that "The July 1948 column began with a highly laudatory review of Loki, from Gerry de la Ree and Genevieve Stephens. The first issue offered the dazzling line-up of Eando Binder, David H. Keller, Richard Shaver, Dorothy Quick, Stanley Weinbaum, and Lin Carter. Remember, this is a fan magazine, not a professional publication. The price: ten cents."

Contributors to issue 2, released in Summer 1948, included Theophilus Alvor (pseduonym for Redd Boggs), R. Flavie Carson, Lin Carter, Thomas H. Carter (Spearhead), George Ebey (Sappho), Stephanie Grace, David H. Keller, Jeanne Koehler, H. King, Richard Shaver (The Shaver Mystery Magazine), Joe Schaumburger, Albert Toth, and Russell H. Woodman.

Cover art was by Jerri Bullock (Fan Artisan), with illustrations by Jerri Bullock and John Grossman.

Publication ceased after this second issue.

Gerry de la Ree was also the editor of Beowulf and Sun Spots.
