Twink is a science fiction fanzine by E. B. Frohvet.

Twink was released in the 1990s from Ellicot City, Maryland, U.S.A., and ran until June 2003. 30 issues were published during that time. It was originally mimeographed but eventually the editor switched to photocopying. The main focus of the fanzine was "on science fiction, fantasy and fandom".

E.B. Frohvet was, as put in the page of Ansible, a "famously pseudonymous publisher". Although he used a pseudonym under which he published, he assrted in several leters of comment that he was not hiding a 'true identity'. Nonetheless, it caused controversy in fandom for a little while.

Contributors of writing to Twink include Lisa Major, Lynn McConchie, Lloyd Penney (Torus), Steve Sneyd (Data Dump), Gene Stewart, Jan Stinton, and Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons).

Ted White's review of Twink ends with the remark, "Twink reminds me of the fanzines I used to get in my first years in fandom, half a century ago. Maybe it's nostalgia on my part, but I'm glad there's still a fanzine like Twink being produced today."
