Fanzine which started in July 1953 under the name Psychotic as which it ran for 19 issues followed by 1 (some sources say 3) under the title Science Fiction Review before folding in 1955. It was relaunched in 1967 as Psychotic #21, as which it ran for 7 issues before changing its name (again) to Science Fiction Review in November 1968.

After 16 issues it was relaunched in 1972 as Richard E. Geis, which, after 3 issues, changed its name to The Alien Critic as which it ran for 8 issues before changing its name back to Science Fiction Review again and running for a further 50 issues before folding in 1986.

It was relaunched by a different editor in 1990 but only lasted for 10 issues before folding for good in May 1992.
