Biographical / Historical

Begun in 1964, New Writings in SF was a British multi-annual hard cover anthology. While it claimed to be focused on highlighting international science fiction writing, the majority of the writing featured was from Britian or the British Commonwealth. Between 1964 and 1972, thirty editions were published. It was one of a number of science fiction anthologies, but because of difference between magazine and book publications, the genre proved unsustainable and died off. Publication of New Writings in SF ceased in 1972.
