Whispering Gallery is a Dorothy Dunnett magazine published in the UK and distributed worldwide to members of the Dorothy Dunnett Readers' Association (DDRA). The copyright is held by the DDRA. It was originally created as an "international variant" of the North American Marzipan and Kisses letterzine, but replaced it entirely in 2001, and is a magazine rather than a letterzine.

The first issue published was #33 in October 1991: the numbering of issues parallelled those of Marzipan and Kisses.
