Beginning with Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Review Annual 1988 (dated 1988 but 1989) ed Robert A. Collins and Robert Latham - whose coverage is of 1987 - this series is an annual book spin-off from the defunct magazine FANTASY REVIEW (folded Aug 1987). The book-review section of the magazinehad been its strongest feature, and continues as the central feature of the annual, whose first edition published around 550 brief reviews (most reprinted, though individual reviews are not so acknowledged, from SFRA NEWSLETTER) along with essay surveys of the year in sf, sf scholarship,horror, etc. SFAFBRA's utility is dubious, since by the time its information is published many of the books described are out of print. SFAFBRA, published by Meckler for 2 years then by GREENWOOD PRESS, had(1989), (1990) and (1991) editions up to the end of 1994.
