Etwas was a science fiction fanzine by Peggy Rae McNight (later Peggy Rae Pavlat, then Peggy Rae Sapienza).

The first issue of Etwas appeared in 1960 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. It was published for three years, ending in 1963. Contributions came from Robert Bloch, and Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons).

Peggy Rae writes in Bucconeer, the publication for the 1998 Baltimore Worldcon convention (for which she was Chairwoman), "Etwas, my first fanzine, was laboriously typed onto stencils, using a manual typewriter and lots of corflu (blue, smelly, correction fluid). Both Robert Bloch and Harry Warner, Jr. had responded to my (typewritten) letters asking for material and I carefully re-typed the material they had mailed to me."

Ed Meskys remembers Reggy Rae, "...I remember once Peggy Rae McNight, now Peggy Rae Pavlat, was doing her own little fanzine Etwas, She sent me Etwas for Niekas - something for nothing!"

Peggy Rae later published the fanzines Of Cabbages and Kings (and Baby Turtles), and Adventures On Earth.
