Australian Fanzine (1966-1969) edited by John Bangsund (1939- ). Australian SF Review was one of the most literate and eclectic of the serious sf fanzines and, despite its relative isolation, was able to attract articles from such writers as Brian W Aldiss, James Blish and Harry Harrison. It also served as a focal point for renewed interest in sf and Fandom in Australia, and brought attention to Australian sf critics such as John Baxter, John Foyster, Bruce Gillespie, Lee Harding and George Turner. Australian SF Review was twice nominated for a Hugo, and won a Ditmar Award in 1969. In 1986 it was revived as Australian Science Fiction Review: Second Series. [PR]
