Oblong is a weird fiction and film fanzine by Bruce Townley.

Oblong was published in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. It began in the mid 1990s, with #3 released in April 1996, #4 in November 1996, #5 in February 1997, #6 in June 1997 and #7 in 1998.

It featured strange, absurd, and sometimes humourous articles, and reviews of weird books and movies. There were articles about the Winchester Mystery House, Big Daddy Roth software, and film noir. As well there are fanzine reviews and a letter column.

Contributors include William Breiding (Star Fire), and Candi Strecker (Sidney Suppey's Quarterly & Confused Pet Monthly). Al Hoff had a column entitled "Pittsburgh: Don't Park Where You See a Chair".

Bruce Townley previously published the fanzines Le Viol: The Fanzine With Taste and Phiz in the 1970s.
