SFRA Newsletter [Science Fiction Research Association]

Browse collection

Established in 1970, the Science Fiction Research Association is the oldest professional organization devoted to the study of science fiction and fantasy in literature and film. The SFRA seeks to improve pedagogy, encourage scholarship, and bring attention to new publications by hosting an annual conference and publishing The Review.

Originally titled The Newsletter, The Review is a quarterly periodical devoted to review essays of new publications in science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction. While The Review focuses heavily on new fiction titles, it also includes review essays on new works of science fiction criticism, theory, and history. Also included are letters to the editor and articles that debate the form, function, and purpose of science fiction review essays.

In a partnership with the Science Fiction Research Association, Special and Digital Collections at the University of South Florida's Tampa Library provides free, unlimited online access to select issues of the SFRA Review that were published between 1974 and 2008. The collection currently includes 130 fully searchable issues in PDF files. Additional titles will be added to the collection as they become available.
