There used to be a separate Vector site at That site is now defunct, but its content is archived here.

Vector is the critical journal of the BSFA. Although its focus is primarily critical examinations, analyses, surveys, and insight into written science fiction and fantasy, it also deals with those genres in other media, including films, television series, video games, radio shows, and music.  Some of the issues are themed; recent and forthcoming themes have included “Stephen Baxter”, “Diana Wynne Jones”, “Women Science Fiction Authors”, and “London & Science Fiction”.

While BSFA members are certainly encouraged to propose articles for Vector, our contributors include many other fans, critics, authors, and creators of related content, from around the world as well as from Britain, although the intersection of science fiction and British interests is the core of the journal’s focus.

The BSFA Review is the reviews section of Vector and aims to cover as much of the field as possible, whether it is science fiction, fantasy, supernatural horror or slipstream. This means that as well as fiction and non-fiction we also try to feature reviews of comics, graphic novels, spoken word, films, plays and exhibitions.

Our reviewers are drawn from our membership so if you are interested in writing for us, please contact the reviews editor.

All review copies should be sent to:

BSFA Review
18 Cromer Road, Barnet, Hertfordshire EN5 5HT

The BSFA Review welcomes submissions from both major publishers and independent presses. However, although self-published authors are welcome to submit their work, you should be aware that it is unlikely to be reviewed.
