Vector

Vector

Vector, the critical journal of the BSFA, was founded in 1958. Over the years Vector has changed shape and form many times. The journal is currently edited by Polina Levontin and Jo Lindsay Walton, and published two to three times a year. Our contributors include academics, critics, fans, authors, and artists, both from the UK and from around the world. Although the journal’s focus is primarily critical examinations, analyses, surveys, and insight into written science fiction, fantasy, horror, and slipstream, we also deal with these genres in other media, such as film, television, theatre, games, radio and podcasts, music, and digital art.

If you would like to submit an article, please query at vector.submissions@gmail.com. We welcome proposals to guest edit special themed issues. Forthcoming themes include “African and Afrodiasporic Speculative Fiction” and “Economics and Science Fiction.” For the latest news from Vector, visit the journal’s website.
