Utopia was a science fiction fanzine by Charles McNutt, the pen name of Charles Beaumont.

Utopia was published in Everett, Washington, U.S.A., in the 1940s.

The first issue appeared May 1945. It featured cover art by Ronald Clyne. The articles in this issue included "Lovecraft and Music" by August Derleth, "The Trail of Caligari's Cabinet" by Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons), "Poe and Music" by B. Meredith Cadman, "Autobiography" by Bill Watson (Diablerie, Sappho), and "Music and Me" by Hannes Bok.
