1. Variant title of two Fanzines – The Alien Critic and Psychotic – edited by Richard E Geis. [PN]
2. The Science Fiction Review was the title of the first issue (March 1975) of what was known for most of its run as The Science Fiction Review (Monthly) (which see). [DRL]
3. US magazine published 1990-1992 by SFR Publications, based in Salem, Oregon and edited by Elton T Elliott. Ten letter-size issues from Spring 1990 to May 1992, at which point publication ceased.
Unlike the previous incarnations that used the title and of which it was a revival (see 1 and 2 above), this Science Fiction Review published fiction in every issue rather than occasionally, though often only a single story; as of old, reviews and other nonfiction still formed the bulk of the content. The debut issue featured Steven Barnes, Gregory Benford, Michael Bishop, Orson Scott Card, Richard E Geis, Pamela Sargent and George Zebrowski. The schedule changed from quarterly to monthly with #5, December 1991, at which point the magazine also began to be sold at newsstands. This brave attempt at making a Small-Press magazine fully professional foundered five issues later. [DRL]
