Void was a science fiction fanzine.

It was started in the 1950s by Gregory Benford and his identical twin brother Jim Benford, when they were living in Germany; Jim Benford left after issue 13, and starting in 1959 there were various co-editors. The first was Ted White, who became co-editor with issue 14, in 1958.

In 1961 Gregory Benford left, and Peter Graham and Terry Carr joined, Carr merged his fanzine Innuendo with Void. Issue 28 was published in early 1962.

Seven years later Ted White and Terry Carr published the last issue, #29. As Ted White explains in the ConDor 2011 program book, "Terry and I had put much of it together in 1962, and in fact I'd run off a third of that issue in 1962, before bogging down on it. I hosted a New Year's Party at which the conversation turned at some point to that unpublished issue, and, Arnie Katz and John (D.) Berry in tow, Terry and I unearthed both the run-off pages and the file of unstencilled and unmimeoed material.

Let's finish it and put it out", someone said"

Contributing artists included Steve Stiles.

Ted White has previously co-edited the fanzine Stellar with Larry Stark.

Terry Carr had previously published Innuendo, and co-edited Klein Bottle with Miriam Carr from 1959-1960.
