Clean Slate Press was a fanzine publisher that published fanzines throughout the 1990s. When they closed in 2002, one fan persuaded the editor to archive some of their fanzines online.
- "It was 1996, and I was reading one of the many mediocre Maximum Press Galactica comics. In the letters page, I saw the letter of a fan who mentioned fan fiction created by a small zine called Clean Slate Press owned by Sharon Monroe. I was immediately intrigued and ordered two books, The Race For Earth and Alternate Conspiracy. I'll never forget the day I sat down to read them.
- I was floored. These stories were absolutely incredible, and I quickly ordered more. I have since bought most of the Galactica books created by Clean Slate Press, and I've enjoyed them so much that I plugged them hard on my website (Hopefully, I sent some business Sharon's way!) Just recently, I learned that Clean Slate Press has ceased publication.
- With the closing of Clean Slate Press, it feels as though the zine era is pretty much over. But rather than allow such phenomenal stories to fade away, I've gotten Sharon's permission to post a number of them here on my site. I feel like I owe a debt to Clean Slate Press because it helped reignite my love for a 20-year-old show without which this website would never have become a reality.
