Novae Terrae is a science fiction fanzine published by the members of the Nuneaton, England Chapter (Chapter 22) of the Science Fiction League as their official publication.

Novae Terrae was edited by Maurice Hanson and Dennis Jacques. It is credited as being the first UK science fiction fanzine. The first issue was released in March 1936. It was ten pages but began to grow quickly, and by issue nine had more than doubled in size.

After this issue the first SF convention takes place in Leeds at Theosphical Hall, which results in Novae Terrae becoming the official organ of the newly formed Science Fiction Association.

Writing was contributed by Forrest J. Ackerman, J.E. Barnes, E.J. "Ted" Carnell, M.T. Crowley, A,J, Dennis, Walter H. Gillings, L.J. Johnson, D.W.F. Mayer, D.R. Smith,

Art work was contributed by Malcolm Plant and later, by Harry Turner.
