Psychotic

A fanzine published by Richard E. Geis starting in July 1953, and changed its name to Science Fiction Review after the Oct-Nov, 1955 issue.

It was nominated for the 1956 Best Fanzine Hugo.

The title Psychotic was revived in 1967 before again changing to Science Fiction Review in 1969. The change was made to reflect Psychotic's change in focus from fandom to sf. As Geis commented, "Essentially, PSY is/was too inappropriate as a title for what the zine had become. I don't mean to sound as if the zine will be stuffy and formal — it'll be casual and active as usual, but a lot of the adult juvenility will be cut. A lot, but not all. I'm a kid at heart, even if I am slowly growing up."
