Our bi-monthly San Francisco Book Review magazine features about 150 book and game reviews covering nearly 40 genres of books.  Inside each issue of SFBR is Another Universe, which is our Science Fiction & Fantasy, Sequential Art, and Games reviews.

Issues also have Feature Reviews, book-related articles, author interviews, and author podcast interviews. Because the magazine is an app, everything can be enjoyed right from inside the publication.*

Please note that the December 2014 magazine issue will be the last one produced for San Francisco Book Review. Magazine issues can be purchased individually for the remaining issues (October and December).
