The SFRA Review (eISSN 2641-2837; formerly published in print as ISSN 1068-395X) is an open access journal published four times a year by the Science Fiction Research Association (SFRA). SFRA Review is devoted to surveying the contemporary field of sf fiction, media, and scholarship as it develops, bringing in-depth reviews with each issue, as well as longer critical articles highlighting key conversations in sf studies, regular retrospectives on recently passed authors and scholars, and reports from members of the SFRA Executive Committee.

SFRA Review History

SFRA Review was initially titled SFRA Newsletter and has been published since 1971, just after the founding of SFRA in 1970. The Newsletter changed its named to SFRA Review in 1992 with issue #194 to reflect the centrality of an organ for critical reviews of both fiction and scholarship to the sf studies community. The Newsletter and Review were published 6 times a year until the early 2000s, when the Review switched to a quarterly schedule. Originally available only to SFRA members or sold per issue for a small fee, SFRA Review was made publicly available on the SFRA's website starting with issue #256 (Jan/Feb 2002). Starting with issue #326, the Review became a stated Open Access publication. Select issues from 1974 to 2011 (issues #31-295) are available as PDFs through the Digital Collections of the University of Southern Florida Libraries (see the link a at the bottom of this page). The first 30 issues are in the process of digitization at the Cushing Memorial Library, Texas A&M University thanks to former Newsletter reviews editor Hal W. Hall and current fiction reviews editor Jeremy Brett.

A list of past SFRA Review editorial staff is found below in the left-hand column. Some of the information for the 1970s-1988 is incomplete due to a lack of internal record-keeping. If you have information about editorial staff service not listed here, please email the editor.
