Issue 2 June 1970

Embelyon was a science fiction fanzine by Lee Anne Lavell and Jim Lavell.

The first issue of Embelyon appeared in May 1970, followed by issue 2 in June, and issue 3 in August 1970. Issue 4 came out in November of 1971. It was published in Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A.

According to Lee Ann Lavell, writing in the August 2008 issue of Time and Again # 5, the title came from the book The Dying Earth by Jack Vance, "As a side note, the title of one of the fanzines I published, Embelyon, as well as the name of one of my cats, Chun (the Unavoidable), were taken from that book."

The articles "View From The Attic", and "Against Modest Proposals" by Jim Lavell, with illustrations by Jim, which had originally appeared in issue 4, was later reprinted in Pixel #1 in August 2006 by Dave Burton.

Lee Ann Lavell had previously published the fanzines Indiana Fantasy, with Ray Beam, and Merlin in the early 1950s, and the fanzine Space Cage in the 1960s.
