SFX magazine is published every four weeks  by Future plc and was founded in 1995. The magazine covers topics in the genres of popular science fiction, fantasy and horror, within the media of films, television, videogames, comics and literature. According to the magazine's website, the SF stands for "science fiction", but the X doesn't stand for anything in particular.
Matt Bielby was the editor for the first 11 issues. He was followed by Dave Golder who left the magazine in 2005 but later returned as its online editor. Golder was replaced by the current editor-in-chief, David Bradley. Other members of staff include deputy editor Richard Edwards, features editor Nick Setchfield and reviews editor Ian Berriman.
SFX also publishes regular special editions. Their website features news, reviews, competitions, reader blogs, and a reader forum. In April 2013, the 35th European Science Fiction Convention in Kiev named SFX Best Magazine in its Hall Of Fame award category.
