Ghuvna was a science fiction fanzine edited by Joe M. Fillinger and Charles Momberger.

The first two issues were published in the U.S.A. in 1952.

Issue #1, published in January-March 1952 artwork by Charles Momberger, and three poems by Raymond L. Clancy.

Issue #2, published in August 1952, featured art work by Charles Momberger, and contained poetry by Raymond L. Clancy, Tom Covington (Bizarre), Walt Klein, Orma McCormick (Starlanes), Maria Paternoster, and Emili A. Thompson, plus other contributions from W. Paul Ganley (writing as Toby Duane), and Dr. David H. Keller.

In Mike Deckinger's article "The Club House" for the April 2007 el, about Rog Phillips' fanzine review column for Amazing Stories, he recalls the review Phillips gave Ghuvna in the December 1952 issue: The highlight of Ghuvna was editor Joe Fillinger’s account of taking his draft, pre-induction physical (remember those days). “If there wasn’t another thing in the zine it would be worth more than a dime.”

Charles Momberger also did book covers for Kenneth Krueger's Shroud Publications publishing company in the 1950s and remained active doing artwork for various chapbooks with W. Paul Ganley for ErieCon in the 2000's.
