The New York Review of Science Fiction (NYRSF), is now available electronically ( in various digital/Ebook formats with a POD print option). Tables of contents, editorials, and some featured articles are offered for free online.
NYRSF includes works of science fiction criticism, essays, and in-depth critical reviews of new works of fiction and scholarship.
For the first 24 years, it was published by David G. Hartwell’s Dragon Press, but with the start of volume 25, it has shifted to publisher Kevin J. Maroney’s Burrowing Wombat Press.

Although international in coverage, the journal also sponsors SF events in the New York City area, principally including a series of readings from prominent writers that are generally broadcast on WBAI (a part of the Pacifica Radio Network, a non-commercial, listener-supported radio station, broadcasting at 99.5 FM in New York City.
