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 (I Palantir), 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 (All Mimsy, NeoLithic), 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, Ned Brooks, Rick Brooks (Nargothrond), John Closson, Thomas Collins, Ingrid von Essen, Bob Foster, Leroy Frazier, Fred Hollander (Hippocampelephantocamelos), 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 was also publishing a music fanzine called Mojo-Navigator Rock & Roll News. In the 1970s he went on to publish Metanoia with Suzy Shaw, and his best known publication, Bomp!.

David Hall also published Grimoire.
