Goojie Publications was a science fiction fanzine by Miriam Dyches (later Miriam Carr).

Robert Lichtman, in the pages of el, relates the story of how Miriam's fanzine came by its name. He tells a story of buying a second hand copy of the book Sirius, which contained a inscription from Forrest J Ackerman, "Miriam: Why not set a goal? - to one day contribute to the world a work as worthwhile as this one?" Lichtman explains, "Miriam was, of course, the first wife of thew late Terry Carr. But at the time Forry wrote this inscription, which is dated April 1958, she was still Miriam Dyches, who Forry at the time (and perhaps forevermore) referred to as "the girl with the golden goojies," Miriam ran with this - she began publishing fanzines around that time, each with a unique name but under the imprint of Goojie Publications."

Contributions included "The Fan Who Hated Quotecards" by Terry Carr, who was publishing Innuendo at that time.

Miriam and Terry Carr soon began co-publishing Klein Bottle, from 1958 till 1960..

Miriam Carr, as Miriam Knight, went on to publish A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Poughkeepsie and Q.E.D., and co-publish 100% Whole Wheat with Robert Lichtman (Trap Door).
