Voice of the Imagi-Nation was a science fiction fanzine by Forrest J Ackerman.

Just prior to starting Voice of the Imagi-Nation, Forrest Ackerman had edited Imagination! for the Los Angeles Science Fiction Society from 1937 till 1938. Voice of the Imagi-Nation was originally a letter column in that fanzine, but was turned into a zine on its own by Ackerman. It was primarily a letter zine. It was initally edited by Ackerman with Myrtle Douglas (MoRoJo).

Contributors included Henry Kuttner, writing on Satanism.

The last issue, #50 appeared in 1947.

In the 1990s, Voice of the Imagi-Nation won the Retro-Hugo Award For Best Fanzine, for 1947 and Forrest Ackerman won the Retro Hugo Award for Best Fan Writer.
