Fantasy Fiction Telegram was a science fiction fanzine edited by John V. Baltadonis, Robert Madle, Milton A. Rothman and Oswald Train.

The first issue of Fantasy Fiction Telegram appeared in October 1936. Four issues of this hectographed fanzine were released, the last in January 1937. Later, Baltadonis released the fifth issue, that had been left partially completed at the time, for the Fantasy Amateur Press Association. This was the official organ of the founders of the Philadelphia Science Fiction Society, and the entrance into science fiction fandom of what was to become an influential and prominent group of fans.

Contributors included John V. Baltadonis, Charles H. Bert, Douglas Blakely, Morris Scott Dollens (Science-Fiction Collector), John Guinta (Cosmic Tales), G.R. Hahn, Robert Madle, Melvyn Milne, Bernard Quinn, Duane Rimel, Milton Rothman, Jack Speer, Oswald Train, and Donald Wollheim (The Phantagraph)

John Baltadonis went on to release Fantasy Fiction Pictorial and assume editorship of Morris Scott Dollen's Science-Fiction Collector. Robert Madle released Fantascience Digest.
