Amapola Press published slash Starsky and Hutch zines from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s.

In 1993, it became In Person Press, which continued to publish Amapola Press' zines, as well as many, many others.

Problems: Early 1990s

There are many complaints about this press regarding non-delivery of goods paid for starting around 1992 and lasting into at least 1993. See issues of Frienz for some fans' comments.

While never stated as a direct reason, GAZ Letter to Fanzine Editors, Publishers and Buyers in 1993 was likely a one result of these publishing problems.

Fans did not appear to have issues with the quality of the zines themselves, but in their distribution. As a result, "Amapola Press" became In Person Press, the latter a reference to Valentine's new policy of only selling zines in person at cons.
