XYZZYnews was an interactive fiction publication — "the magazine for interactive fiction enthusiasts" — and website edited by Eileen Mullin. There were 20 issues published from 1995 to 2001, plus two e-newsletters in 2001. Issues were usually available in both plain text and PDF formats. Some issues were published in HTML as well on the XYZZYnews website, although some of those versions have been phased out.

The XYZZYnews website also hosted the XYZZY Awards (from 1996 to 2008) and IntroComp (from 2002 to 2008).
