Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction

full name / name of organization: 
Dr Paul March-Russell

"Foundation" is the journal of the British SF Foundation formed in 1972. It is published three times a year, and is currently looking for articles and reviews for 2015. The journal publishes on any aspect of sf with particular emphases upon interdisciplinary, international and cultural perspectives. We are interested in both the histories of sf and in current trends, including the borderlines between genres, media and what passes for the 'mainstream'. Articles should be up to 6000 words in length, double-spaced and written in accordance with the style sheet available on the SF Foundation website. If you are interested in guest-editing a special issue of "Foundation" (this year, we are publishing special issues on sf and the classical world, and sf and videogaming), then please also contact the editor at the address above.

We are also interested in receiving interviews with sf writers, critical reflections on the writing and profession of sf, conference reports and review-articles on sf-related events (e.g. exhibitions). Word length should be up to 2000 words.

Lastly, we are looking for new contributors to our book reviews section. "Foundation" reviews both fiction and non-fiction works. Reviews should be up to 1500 words long and submitted to our Books Editor, Andy Sawyer (
