Muzzy was a science fiction fanzine by Claude Hall.

Muzzy was released in the 1950s in Austin, Texas, U.S.A. It was the only science fiction fanzine released in Texas at that time. It was a mimeographed fanzine featuring short stories, articles and letters. Illustrations were by Don Duke, Bill Pearson (Sata Illustrated), and Nancy Share (Ignatz).

Recounting those days, Claude Hall says, "Mimeographed it myself on a $30 Sears Roebuck machine that didn't print very well which I suppose was okay because most of the stuff in that fanzine wasn't really worth reading."

At least 10 issues appeared, with issue 7 appearing in 1954, #8 in November 1955, #9 in April 1956, and #10 released in February 1957. Some issues were distributed by SAPS, Spectator Amateur Publishers Association.

The fanzine ended when Hall was drafted for the Korean War.

Claude Hall also contributed to fanzines such as Quandry, and Nite Cry by Don Chappell, wrote short fiction, which was published in Other Worlds, edited by Raymond Palmer (The Comet), and later several novels, such as Down on the Corner of the Earth.
