Escape was a science fiction fanzine by Richard 'Dick' Wilson.

Escape was published in the 1930s and 1940s in Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A. Because there were no titles beginning with the letter "E' in the Swisher S-F Check-List of Science Fiction fanzines, Wilson created Escape to remedy the situation. Volume 1, No. 2 was published in 1939.

Contributors of writing included Cyril Kornbluth, whose first solo story, "The Rocket of 955" appeared in Vol. 1 No. 2.

Contributors of artwork included David Kyle, among others.

During the 1930s, Richard Wilson was a member of The Futurians, a group of science fiction enthusiasts that included Cyril Kornbluth, Dave Kyle, R.W. Lowndes, John B. Michel, Frederik Pohl, Jack Robins, Donald Wollheim, and Dirk Wylie.

Escape was reviewed in the 1940 issue of Startling Stories.

Richard Wilson went on to win the Nebula Award for his science fiction writing.
