Science Fiction was a mimeographed fanzine published by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster for five issues beginning in October 1932. It ran mainly fiction, from authors such as Ray Palmer and Clare Winger Harris, as well as the faneds.

It was reviewed in William Crawford and D. R. Welch's Science Fiction Bibliography, published in 1935:

Edited and published by Jerome Siegel, this mimeographed magazine ran five issues. All five are illustrated, and are of uniform size, 8x11. Vol I. No* 1 is dated October 1932. By mistake, the second issue, November 1932, was also numbered Vol 1, No 1. In addition to an abundance of fan material, SCIENCE FICTION featured stories by Raymond A. Palmer, Clare Winger Harris, Bernard J. Kenton, and illustrations by Clay Ferguson and Joe Shuster.

In spite of the bad printing (some pages are blotted and indistinct) copies are steadily sought by collectors. Out of print, difficult to obtain, prices are already very high. Prior to SCIENCE FICTION, Seigel edited two typewritten magazines, Cosmic Stories and Cosmic Stories Quarterly. Apparently, all copies of these last have been lost or destroyed.
