Australian Science Fiction Review
Issue 10, June 1967

The Australian Science Fiction Review, formerly the Australian Science Fiction Newsletter, was an Australian science fiction fanzine edited and published by John Bangsund.

Between June 1966 and June 1969 Bangsund released twenty issues, until he relaunched the fanzine as Scythrop.

Contributors included Brian Aldiss, John Baxter, James Blish (The Planeteer), A. Bertram Chandler, Jim Ellis (as 'Jay Wallis'), John Foyster, Bruce Gillespie (SF Commentary), Lee Harding (Antipodes, Etherline, Perhaps), Langdon Jones, Ursula Le Guin, Michael Moorcock (A Fanzine Called Eustace, Typo), Sam Moskowitz (Different), Bernard O'Dowd, Thomas Love Peacock, Franz Rottensteiner, Bob Sessions (as 'Scribarius'), Bob Toomey (Science Fiction Five Yearly), and George Turner.

The Australian Science Fiction Review won the Ditmar Award for Best Fanzine in 1969, the first year it was presented.

Science Fiction Studies Senior Editor Rob Latham ranks Australian Science Fiction Review as one of the ten most important fanzines, describing it as "one of the most intellectually rigorous and interesting" zines.

The title had a second run from 1986 to 1991 (Australian Science Fiction Review (second series)).
