Chooog is a science fiction fanzine by Lee Hoffman (as Lee Shaw) and Larry Shaw.

Chooog was published in the 1950s in Staten Island, New York, U.S.A. The first issue appeared in 1957, #2 in May 1957, and issue 6 was published in 1959. It is a mimeographed fanzine, made for the Fantasy Amateur Press Association.

Robin Bailey, in his article "Excavations", writes of this fanzine, "And finally, for tonight at least, we have CHOOOG from May, 1957. This fanzine was produced by Larry Shaw. Again, it's on mimeo and is definitely a FAPA offering. Among other things, it contains a story by Lee Hoffman, with whom Shaw was good friends, entitled, THE HANGED MAN. The story is dated 26-2057. It's actually not a bad story, either. There's also the usual fannish gossip and artwork."
