Suzanne Tompkins, also known as "Suzle", is a zine editor.

Suzanne began publishing fanzines in the 1960s with Granfalloon. Linda Bushyager and Suzanne Tompkins co-published the first issue in 1966 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.A, with a cover by Adrienne Fein. Suzanne Tompkins was co-editor for the first six issues.

Her next collaboration was with Jerry Kaufamn. Together they released The Spanish Inquisition in the 1970s in New York City, New York, U.S.A. Ten issues were released. The Spanish Inquisition won the FAAn Award for Best Fanzine in 1977.

Mainstream was their return to fanzine publishing in the 1980s from their new location in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

Littlebrook is their follow-up zine and return to publishing in the 2000s. This time they decided to do a smaller zine that would appear sporadically, whenever they felt like it. The first issue appeared in August 2002; the most recent issue, #8, was published in February 2911.
