Vanations was a science fiction fanzine by Norman G. Browne published in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Six issues of this title were released, the first appearing in June 1953 and the last in July 1953.

He was midway through producing the first issue of his own fanzine and had printed the cover, with photographs by Frank Stephens, in Vancouver, when he moved to Edmonton, where the rest of the issue was produced.

Artwork was contributed by Richard Bergeron (Warhoon), Jack Harness, Orville Mosher, and Naaman Peterson.
