Scintilla was a science fiction fanzine by Larry Anderson, published in Billings, Montana, U.S.A.

At least six issues of this hectographed fanzine were published in the 1950s.

Contributors included Redd Boggs, Charles Catania, Terry Carr (Innuendo), Barclay Johnson, Bob Johnson (Orb), Vernon L. McCain (Wastebasket), Orma McCormick (Starlanes), and Charles Wells (Fiendetta).

Artwork was contributed by Charles Wells, among others.

John Ledyard, reviewing Scintilla for the December 1952 issue of Peon, writes, "A real colorful item, with three or more colors on almost every page~ The cover has three colors; it's a cartoon by Charles Wells. Inside are more cartoons by Charles Wells, articles by Redd Boggs and Terry Carr, columns by Charles Wells and Bob Johnson, fiction by Charles Wells and Charles Catania, and other stuff (poetry, features, et al), Generally good stuff, though the reproduction could be better. But, since this is the dittoed issue, that's understandable."

Larry Anderson was the founder of WAPA, the Whimsical Amateur Press Association, which lasted for about a year and a half, and he also published the fanzine Heathen in 1956.
