The Village Idiot was a science fiction fanzine published by Paul Shingleton, Jr. and Tom Milton.

The Village Idiot was released in St. Albans (Shingleton) and Huntington (Milton), West Virginia, U.S.A. in the mid-1960s. The first issue appeared in June 1966, and was 6 pages. It included an editorial and the articles "The New Penology" and "How to get out of Vietnam".

Four issues were published, the last in March/April 1967.

Contributors of art work included Margaret Dominick (DEA), among others.

Ron Bennett, in Skyrack #94, 8th August 1967, calls it, "Fair and promising, but Paul needs to work on it rather than letting it simply happen (which of course also applies to Skyrack)."

Previously, Paul Shingleton, Jr. had published Fanivac, beginning in 1959. Tom Milton also published Crud.
