A Wealth of Fable is an informal (and indispensable) history of fandom in the 1950s written by Harry Warner, Jr.

It was first published in a three-volume softcover set by Joseph D. Siclari in 1976-1977. An index to the set was published in 1990 by Nancy Atherton.

A hardcover edition was published in one volume in 1992 by SCIFI Press, Van Nuys, California, edited by Dick Lynch and with an Introduction by Wilson Tucker.

The 1992 edition adds hundreds of photographs of SF fans.

A Wealth of Fable was a sequel to the earlier history of fandom in the 1940s, All Our Yesterdays, also written by Warner.
