Alternative Press Review (byline: "Your guide beyond the mainstream") is an independent American magazine established in 1994 as a sister periodical to Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed.[1] As of 2002, its editorial collective consisted of Jason McQuinn (Anarchy), Chuck Munson ( and Thomas Wheeler (Out of Bounds).[2] Munson was co-editor and reviewer from 1997-2003, when he was replaced by Allan Antliff.

The magazine's chief concerns, according to New Statesman are "sex, other media and the CIA".[3] Contributors to the review have included McQuinn, Noam Chomsky and Harold Pinter. It was criticized by Kirsten Anderberg in a 2005 issue for the fact that its contributors were overwhelmingly male, a phenomenon that according by Wheeler is a result of low numbers of submissions from female writers.[1] McQuinn responded to Anderberg by stating that the gender of writers and publishers within socially-conscious alternative and radical media was "simply irrelevant".[1]

The review was described in 1994 by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as "[c]loser to the edge of the magazine world, and not quite as articulate as the Utne Reader"[4] – the magazine's main rival and market leader.[3] Ian Hargreaves, writing in the New Statesman in 1998, called the magazine "the real rivet-spitter on the block" of alternative media,[3] while a 1999 OC Weekly feature hailed it as "the essential nutrient missing from one’s daily McMedia diet of misinformation and disinformation."[5]
