BSFA members receive all BSFA publications. Some BSFA content is also made freely available to members and non-members alike. If you are a writer, critic, reviewer, or interviewer, and interested in contributing something, please get in touch with the relevant editor. You don't necessarily have to be a BSFA member to write for our publications.
Vector is the critical journal of the BSFA, publishing in-depth articles, interviews, and reviews on SFF and diverse topics in technology, science, society and culture. It caters to a diverse audience of both scholars and non-academic fans.
Edited by Polina Levontin and Jo Lindsay Walton.
Between 1960 and 1963 the BSFA published The BSFA Newsletter, which became The BSFA Bulletin between 1965 and 1972, later relaunched briefly as The BSFA Newsletter again and then as Matrix from 1975 to 2011, gradually focusing more on SFF in TV and media.
The reviews zine Paperback Parlour was published between 1977 and 1980; this ignited into Paperback Inferno from 1980 to 1992, before merging into Vector. The Vector vesicle eventually became The BSFA Review, before striking out again in 2017, its current form.
In 1965 and then again in 1977-1978, the BSFA also published Tangent, a fiction magazine.
There have also been plenty of other interventions over the years, some of which you may be able to discover in places like the Science Fiction Encyclopedia, the Internet Speculative Fiction Database, and the Fanac Fan History Project.
The BSFA Newsletter
We also have a regular email newsletter (about once per month) to keep members informed and share items of interest to SFF communities.
