W. Paul Ganley is a fanzine publisher and editor of science fiction, poetry and horror fanzines.

He has contributed to many zines and small press publications, sometimes using the pseudonyms Toby Duane, A. Arthur Griffin, or Walter Quednau.

The first fanzine published by W. Paul Ganley was Fan-Fare. The first issue was released in 1950 in North Tonawanda, New York, U.S.A. Fan-Fare was published from 1950-1954, reaching at least three volumes of issues.

During the run of Fan-Fare, Ganley also released Snowflakes in the Sun, a one-issue-only poemzine. It was published in 1952, though the Preface is dated March 9, 1953. It is subtitled "A Collection of Fantasy Verse." In the Preface, though, Ganley comments that "many of the poems herein belong to the realm of science-fiction." Also during this time, he was one of the co-editors of Cataclysm.

Starting in 1980, Ganley published Amanita Brandy, a small press publication of weird, horror, and fantasy poetry. Four issues of Amanita Brandy were released, beginning in 1980 with issue #1, followed by Issue #2 in 1989, issue #3 in 1992, and the last issue published in Summer 1999.
