Science-Fantasy Review (later issues' three-line masthead made it look like Science Fantasy Review lacking the explicit hyphen, but that was consistently used within), subtitled The Science-Fiction Newspaper, was a newszine "published by Liverpool Branch SFA", edited first by Leslie J. Johnson and then L. V. Heald (sometimes in collaboration with Ron Holmes) in 1939 and on the New Year of 1940. Heald and Holmes then produced a successor, Science-Fantasy Review War Digest.

It was announced as a weekly but struggled to remain bi-weekly until the War started, then shrinking to a 4-page monthly. It cost a penny and half per issue, or a shilling for nine.
