Fantasy Fiction Periodical was a science fiction and fantasy fanzine edited by John Baltadonis and William H. Miller, Jr., and published by Comet Publications.

Released in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., the work on issue one began in 1937, and it was destined to come out as an organ of the United Fantasy Artists in the Fall of 1939, but Comet Publications took over and it wasn't until half a year later that it was finally released on March 29, 1940.

Artists featured are Jack Agnew, John V. Baltadonis, Morris Scott Dollens (Science-Fiction Collector), John Giunta (Cosmic Tales), Walter E. Marconette (Scienti-Snaps), William H. Miller, Bernard Quinn, James Rogers, Milton A. Rothman (Fantasy Fiction Telegram), and James V. Taurasi (Cosmic Tales).

William H. Miller, Jr. had previously been the Associate Editor of The Planeteer.

John Baltadonis had previously co-published Fantasy Fiction Telegram with Robert Madle, Milton A. Rothman and Oswald Train, and Imaginative Fiction with Robert Madle, Jack Agnew and Harvey Greenblat.
