Lighthouse is a science fiction fanzine by Terry Carr.

The first issue of Lighthouse, published in 1958 by Terry Carr and Pete Graham, was intended as a one shot zine. After relocating to New York, Graham revived Lighthouse and released two issues on his own as a Fantasy Amateur Press Association zine. When Terry Carr moved to New York in 1961, Graham offered him co-editorship of the zine. Later, Carr assumed editorship and Graham wrote a column for the zine. 15 issues were published in all. It was nominated for a Hugo Award for 'Best Fanzine' for 1967 and 1968.

Contributions have included "Darkhouse" by Alva Rogers, his story of the SF crowd in the 1940s when he was living in Jack Parson's house during the time Parsons was engaged with L. Ron Hubbard on the Alistair Crowley magical ritual known as the "Babylon Working". "Darkhouse" was later quoted extensively in the book Sex and Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons.

Also included is the article, "Drugs, Hallucinations and the Quest for Reality," by Philip K. Dick (Nov 64).

Along with Philip K. Dick and Alva Rogers, other contributing writers included Gina Ellis Clark (Queebshots), George Metzger and Donald Wollheim.
