A Fanzine Called Eustace was a science fiction fanzine by Michael Moorcock.

A Fanzine Called Eustace was released in Surrey, England in Winter 1959. It was a one-shot. The Art Editor was Jom Cawthorn, and Assistants were Sandra Hall and Pete Taylor. The fanzine was duplicated on 'Permaprint' by Dick Ellingsworth.

The text that the character on the front cover is speaking jokingly gives a rationale for this fanzine: "They say Moorcock had so many complaints from subscibers to M.J.M. mags that folded, that he had to bring out this one to avoid a lawsuit".

Contributing artists include Graham Allen, Ray Nelson and ATom (The ATom Anthology). The cover is by Jim Cawthorn.

Contributions were "Crowings" by Michael Moorcock; "In One Easy Lesson" by Bob Lumley; "Invitation" by London Circle; "Film Review" by Alan Dodd; "Soho Interlude" by Michael Moorcock; "Don't Call me Comrade", a description of a trip to Russia by Sandra Hall (Vector); "Bookworming", an account of book-hunting adventures by George Locke (Smoke); "Under The Banner of the White Horse" by Bob Richardson; plus a letter from Ray Nelson.

Michael Moorcock also published the fanzine Typo and was one of the editors of Vector.
