Starling was a science fiction fanzine by Lesleigh (Couch) Luttrell and Hank Lutrell.

Starling was first published in Missouri, U.S.A. and later in Madison, Wisconsin, U.S.A.

In sf critic Rob Latham's article "Fanzine Research", in the April 2008 issue of el,, he wrote of Starling, Susan Wood's Aspidistra, and ODD, by Raymond and Joyce Fisher with Richard Elsberry, that they were, "vehicles of antiestablishment attitudes virtually indistinguishable at times from the contemporary underground press.”

Contributions of writing were by Michael Carlson, Barry Gillam, Richard Gordon, Steve Grant, Terry Hughes, Joe Sanders, Angus Taylor, Bob Tucker (Le Zombie), and Jim Turner.

Contributions of artwork were by John Berry, Sheryl Birkhead, Tom Foster, Denis Kitchen, Joe Pearson, Dan Steffan and Reed Waller.


Lesleigh Couch Luttrell had previously co-published Quark with brother Chris Couch. In 1972, Lesleigh Luttrell won the first Down Under Fan Fund (DUFF), a fund which helps send a North American fan to Australia and New Zealand (or vice versa in alternate years). In 1975, Starling was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Fanzine.
