Rot was a science fiction fanzine by Mal Ashworth.

Rot was distributed through the Offtrails Magazine Publishers Association in the 1950s and 1960s. Issue 4 was released in 1960, and issue 5 in 1963.

Writing in Skyrack, Ron Bennett reviews Rot, and says, "...this magazine is chockful of examples of the famous Ashworth humour, and I have to confess, is extremely hard to review in detail, except to say, perhaps, that this is a commentary on life as seen through the Ashworth eyes."

Contributors of writing included Sid Birchby, Irene Potter (Brennschluss]]), Harry Warner, Jr. (Horizons), and Doc Weir.

Contributors of art work include Bill Rotsler, and ATom (The ATom Anthology).
