Fanzine usually edited by Bruce Gillespie, but sometimes edited by John Foyster.

SF Commentary was first published in 1969. It has been nominated for the 1972 Best fanzine Hugo, the 1973 Best fanzine Hugo, and the 1975 Best fanzine Hugo.

There was an issue 55½, which appears to have been distributed as an insert to issue 54.
Some issues have been double issues (e.g., 44/45 and 55/56), triple issues (35-36-37) or even quintuple issues (62/63/64/65/66). And there has been an issue 80A as a supplement to issue 80.
Issue number had reached 90 by the end of 2015.

SF Commentray has won the Ditmar Award for best Australian fanzine a record five times: 1972, 1973, 1977, 1980 and 2002.
