Stellar was a science fiction fanzine by Larry Stark and Ted White.

Stellar began life as Zip, edited by Ted White. With issue 8, published in 1956, White changed the name to Stellar and Larry Stark joined as co-editor. The two editors released Stellar until 1957.

In his article "What Are The Greatest Fanzines?" for Vegas Fandom Weekly, Arnie Katz writes, "Stellar...established faan Fiction (fiction about fans) as a genre and also explored new frontiers of multi-color mimeography.Stellar presented both classic reprints and new stories that attempted to bring the values of fiction to stories about fans and Fandom."

Contributors of writing included Charles Burbee (Shangri L'Affaires), Randall Garrett, and Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons).

Artwork, including four color mimeographed covers, was by Ted White.
