Niekas is a fanzine that spans fantasy and science fiction interests with a basis in Tolkein edited by Ed Mesky and Felice Rolfe.
Niekas was begun in 1962 as an apazine, before becoming generally available, and published in New Hampshire, U.S.A. Ed Meskys wrote about the zine, "I started a separate mailing-comments zine for the APA, and changed its name to NIEKAS and started the numbering over again with the June 1962 issue.... Since there was no Tolkien fanzine being published I decided to devote NIEKAS to Tolkien and try to run at least one Tolkien related piece in each issue." The word 'Neikas' is Lithuanian for nothing or nobody.
Covers were by Jerry Burge, Diana Paxson and others, with illustrations by Vaughn Bode, Jack Gaughan,
