(Did you mean a different Science Fiction World?)


Science Fiction World (aka Sci-Fi World, SFW and 科幻世界) is the largest circulation prozine in China, headquartered in Chengdu, Sichuan. Founded in 1979, it was originally titled Science Literature; it was retitled in 1991, the year Chengdu hosted the annual conference of World SF: An Organization of SF Professionals.

SFW Publishing, the publishers, were owned by the Chinese government but became independent in 1984. The magazine established the annual Galaxy Awards in 1985.


Galaxy Awards[edit]

The Galaxy Awards (银河奖), the first major science fiction awards in China, were established in 1985 by Science Fiction World magazine and given annually since. The awards honor professional work appearing in the magazine, based on voting by readers.

The awards ceremony takes place at the Chengdu International Science Fiction and Fantasy Conference in Chengdu, Sichuan, or at an annual writers’ conference sponsored by SFW.
