Granfalloon is a science fiction zine that ran twenty issues. At least one issue contains Star Trek: TOS material.

Possible origin of this zine's title: "A granfalloon, in the fictional religion of Bokononism (created by Kurt Vonnegut in his 1963 novel Cat's Cradle), is defined as a "false karass." That is, it is a group of people who outwardly choose or claim to have a shared identity or purpose, but whose mutual association is actually meaningless."Wikipedia
