Entmoot was a science fiction and fantasy fanzine by Greg Shaw.

Entmoot was devoted to the works of JRR Tolkein. It was published in San Bruno, and then San Francisco, California, U.S.A. in the 1960s. The first two issues, released in 1965, were edited by Greg Shaw with David Hall, who relinquished his co-editorship since he felt his interest in Tolkien was not suited for the serious nature of Entmoot with issue 3, published February 1966. Issue 4, the last issue, was released August 1966.

Contributors of poetry included Ned Brooks (later editor of It Goes On The Shelf), E.E. Evers, Ted Johnstone (Shangri L'Affaires), and Peter Sloman.

Conbtibutors of articles included Ruth Berman (SH - sf Fanthology), Ned Brooks, Michael Laton, Mark Mandel, Banks Mebane, Larry Paschleke, and Felice Rolfe (Niekas).

Letters came from Ruth Berman, Dainis Bisenicks, Nan Braude, Rick Brooks, John Closson, Thomas Collins, Ingrid von Essen, Bob Foster, Fred Hollander, Ted Johnstone, June M. Koningsberg, Mark Mandel, Banks Mebane, Rick Obermeyer, Larry Paschelke, Steve Perrin, Dick Plotz, George Biris, Bruce Robbins, Felice Rolfe, Don Simpson, Peter Sloman, Ben Solon, James Toren, Barry Tunick, Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons), James Wright, and John Yohalem.

Entmoot gained Greg Shaw a certain amount of attention when it was written up in The Saturday Evening Post. He went on to publish the music fanzine Bomp!.
