US critical magazine, founded and edited by Neil Barron, published by Borgo Press, 13 issues 1979-1980; revived with the Science Fiction Research Association as publisher, still ed Barron, 20 issues 1982-1983; amalgamated with Fantasy Newsletter to form Fantasy Review, January 1984, edited by Robert A Collins, with Barron as reviews editor. This useful journal often reviewed as many as 50 books an issue – novels, collections, secondary and associational literature – and with so many reviewers involved was a triumph of editorial organization. Its passing is regretted, especially since SFRA Newsletter, which since the late 1980s has been doing something similar, usually prints rather shorter reviews (especially since mid-1992) than did Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Review, and its standards seem a little more uneven.
