Leprechaun is a science fiction fanzine by Larry Shaw.

Published in the early 1940s in Schenectady, New York, U.S.A., four issues of this mimeographed publication appeared. The first issue appeared in March 1942, and the second issue in the same year. The fourth and last issue was published in March 1945, and was distributed by the Vanguard Amateur Press Association (VAPA).

Contributions of poetry came from Rosco E. Wright (Beyond).

Issue three featured a stapled-in black and white photograph of Forrest J Ackerman (Voice of the Imagi-Nation).

Letters came from Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons).

Larry Shaw also published the fanzine Nebula, and then went on to co-publish the fanzine Science*Fiction with Dan and Judy Zissman (now known as Judith Merril), followed by Chooog in the 1950s, and then, with Noreen Shaw, Axe in the 1960s.
