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 issue, released in June 1965, and the second in October 1965, was 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 art work included Jim Bogart, Johnny Chambers, Geoff Evans and Joe Staton.

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

Ted Johnstone's poem in issue 4, The Passing of the Elven-kind was reprinted from the November 1959 issue of All Mimsy #5.

Contributors of articles included Ruth Berman (SH - sf Fanthology), Clint Bigglestone, Ned Brooks, David Hall, Mark Mandel, Banks Mebane, Larry Paschleke, Felice Rolfe (Niekas), Don Simpson, and Becker Staus.

Letters came from Ruth Berman, George Biris, Dainis Bisenicks, Nan Braude, Rick Brooks, John Closson, Thomas Collins, Ingrid von Essen, Bob Foster, Leroy Frazier, 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.

Greg Shaw was simultaneously publishing the science fiction fanzine Feemwlort, but it was Entmoot that gained Greg Shaw a certain amount of attention when it was written up in The Saturday Evening Post. He went on to publish Metanoia, and music fanzines such as Mojo-Navigator Rock & Roll News and, Bomp!.
