Critical Wave, later subtitled The European Science Fiction & Fantasy Review, was a British fanzine edited by Steve Green and Martin Tudor between 1987 and 1996. Early editions were mimeographed, with later issues photocopied or - very occasionally - professionally printed.

Contributors included Graham Joyce, Michael Moorcock (Typo), Stephen Baxter, D West, Bob Shaw, Steve Sneyd (Data Dump), Charles Stross, Dave Carson, Iain Banks, Jim Porter, David A Hardy, Michael Marrak and Sue Mason.

Contributors of art included covers by Iain Byers, Kevin Clarke, and Harry Turner (Zenith, Now & Then).

In 2008, Green and Tudor announced plans to revive the title as an electronic fanzine. The first edition appeared on eFanzines that November, although technical problems delayed the follow-up.
