AllGen Press was a fanzine publisher that published gen fanzines from 1999 to 2003. From their submissions page:

AllGen Press means just that -- NO slash. I do not accept or print slash stories. For your slash zine needs, I heartily recommend Devious Developments Press. 'Gen' includes stories with same-sex relationships if, and only if, the relationship is established in canon. (i.e, Willow and Tara from Buffy is gen; Jim and Blair from The Sentinel is slash.) Shipper stories are also not included in my definition of gen, just to be perfectly clear. My definition of ship fic is as follows: a romantic or sexual relationship between two established characters of the opposite sex from any show, whether graphic or non-graphic, unless it is established in the show. (i.e., Sam and Jack from Stargate may not have a relationship. Amanda and Lee from Scarecrow and Mrs. King may have one.) A sexual relationship with an OFC that is not graphically described does not fall into my definition of ship fic under most circumstances, although I reserve the right to judge stories on an individual basis.

AllGen Press has a 'no warnings' policy. This means that I will not print warnings about any story. You pays your money and you takes your chances. If you have questions about any story, please contact me. I will be happy to answer any and all questions privately.

I will print death stories in anthology zines. In keeping with the above-mentioned 'no warnings' policy, they will have no warnings. However, I will answer any and all questions sent to me privately.

I will not print previously net-published stories in anthology zines like Blended Spirits, with the single exception of the Author's Choice series. Stories in the Author's Choice zines will be revised and expanded from the net-published versions. One-shot zines can be previously net-published only if the story is revised and expanded from the net-published version before printing.

I require a waiting period of one year from the date of publication before stories appear on the net. In the case of previously net-published stories, the waiting period applies to the revised and expanded version that appears in the zine. Art prints should also wait one year before being sold.


All contributions, whether fiction, poetry or art, that fill a minimum of one page will receive a contributor's copy of the zine in which they appear.

When a submission is accepted, expect to be edited. I do edit, and I do expect re-writes. My job as an editor is to help you become a better writer, and I take that seriously. [1]
