Smoke was a science fiction fanzine published by George Locke.

The first issue of Smoke appeared in July 1959. It featured articles by Ken Bulmer and Bob Richardson, with illustrations by Jim Cawthorn.

Issue 2 (November 1959) included Sid Birchby, Belle Dietz, Ivor mayne, Archie Mercer, Ella Parker, Rog Rogers, Vic Ryan, and Andy Young.

The 3rd appearance of Smoke was delayed due to George Locke's entry into the armed forces, and was published by Ella Parker. It included an account of Locke's recent experiences, as well as contributions by Mal Ashworth, John Berry, Sid Birchby, Vince Clarke, and Ken Potter.

The first year it appeared it was voted the 6th favourite British fanzine in the Skyrack Readers Fan Poll. In 1960, it was in 3rd place.
