Anomaly is a gen anthology of Battlestar Galactica fiction, articles and reviews. It ran for 20 issues.

Summary from an ad in Datazine #28: "A Battlestar Galactica zine that dares to be different. Our fiction is unusual, it isn't soap operas or endless rehashes of Starbuck and Apollo saving the galaxy."

Contents

  • Endings and Beginnings by Susan J. Paxton. This story covers the last few months before the holocaust.
  • Demons are Forever by Hack ’n Slash Garcia. The editor notes: "Pyramids was an interesting BG fanzine. For one thing, it printed a grand total of two issues before the editors up and joined the Army. For another, it was graphically one of the handsomest BG zines on record; the copy I have has a striking black cover with silver lettering and illustrations. As is normal for fanzines, the stories varied widely in quality, but one of them was the funniest BG story I've ever read. They only printed part one—for all I know part two was never even written—but it’s amusing enough to run by itself. For several years I tried to hunt down the writer of the story and/or the editors of Pyramids, with absolutely no luck, so I reprinted this story in ANOMALY 19, apologetically without permission. It was worth it just to get it back into print."

Issue 20

Anomaly 20 was published in 1993.
