The Time Traveller was a science fiction fanzine.

Following in the wake of the first science fiction fanzine The Comet, The Time Traveller was among the earliest fanzines published in the 1930's. It arose from the fan group The Scienceers, based in the Bronx, New York. It was at first produced using a mimeograph machine but the fanzine proved such a success that by the third issue it was being printed as a typeset magazine.

One of the earliest subscribers was Jerome Seigel, who was inspired to create his own fanzine Science Fiction. Seigel later went on to create Superman with illustrator Joe Shuster.

The editors of The Time Traveller were Mort Weisinger and Julius Schwartz; both became prominent figures in the world of science fiction.
