Boowatt was a science fiction fanzine by Garth Danielson.

Boowatt was published Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in the late 1970s. The first issue appeared in October 1975. 29 issues were published in total, the last appearing in December 1979.

Contributing artists included Howard Cruse, and Roldo, among others.

Contributors of writing included Steve George, James A. Hall, and Mae Strelkov.

Vaughn Fraser writes of issue 27; "This product of 'Decadent Winnipeg Fandom' can usually be counted on to be rather bizarre, not too serious, to contain at least some fair and often good writing, to have an atrocious munber of typos, and to be legible & creative, but not terribly neat or polished in physical appearance."

"This issue concludes an engaging series by Mae Streklov which is basically reminiscences from various periods of her life."

Later in the 1980s, Garth Danielson would move to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and became one of the co-editors of the Minnesota Science Fiction Society's official organ, Rune.
