Daphne Buckmaster is a fanzine editor originally from London, England and later Scotland.

Daphne Busckmaster began attending science fiction covention s in the 1940s when she was known as Daphne Bradley. She is noted being the only woman at the convention at the White Horse Tavern in 1948. After her marriage to husband Ron Buckmaster, she was a member of the Woolwich Science Fiction and Vargo Statten Appreciation Society in 1954.

She began publishing her fanzine Esprit in 1954: at first it was intended for circulation in the Offtrails Magazine Publishers Association (OMPA) but with the 13th issue in 1960 she decided to make it generally available. She stated her intentions were:

"...an attempt at the sort of fanzine which I have long waited to see but have never come across - a magazine in which observations, experiences and ideas can be exchanged." Five of the post OMPA issues were released, the last in 1961.

In 1960 she released the one shot zine Hobo, and also began publishing Random, of which two issues appeared, the second in 1961.
