  • pm (post-malodaar) (1990, Blake's 7, gen, Signe Hovde/Most Inappropriate Press, "pm will explore the ramifications of the B7 episode 'Orbit,' which holds a perverse fascination for many fans. In some ways, the episode is more painful than the debacle on GP two episodes later. What happened on GP was (arguably) and accident. What happened on the shuttle between Malodaar and Scorpio was not. A zine focusing on the events surrounding 'Orbit' will bring together that which is best about fandom: A multitude of perspectives on a single topic.")
  • PO 343-PO 434 (ST/SW, "You'll need 3-D glasses for this one!", 1985)
  • PS (1995, ST & ST.TNG ("Submissions being accepted for this x-rated same sex stories from either classic Trek or ST:TNG zine. (We have a contributor swearing a Beverly/Uhura story!) No K/S though.")
  • The Pacific Connection (V letterzine
  • Paging Doctor Blake (Blake's 7/Doctor Who, 1989, Robert L. Collins: "B7/Dr. Who zine, from Kansas; and that it had been cancelled, with a note: "Everything was lost to the Tornado. In other words, it's gone with the wind.")

  • Patterns of Time (Blake's 7, 1988, "From Shadow Productions" and Theresa Buffaloe and Janet Paderewski, "All submissions must take place in historical time periods. No fantasy settings no "before the fall of Atlantis" scenarios, please. All stories much take place in actual places or fictitious locales representative of the actual place and time. The B7 characters must exist as born and 'bred natives of the time. ie: What if Blake had been born in colonial America. What if Avon had been born in Ancient Rome? What if Del Tarrant had served in Vietnam? Especially interested in pieces under 20 pages though longer stores will be gratefully considered. Filler art needed! Got an urge to do Vila as the Dodger? We'll take it! Want to draw Travis as a gunslinger or Servalan as Queen of the Nile? We'll give it a good horne! Pen and ink preferred. Pencil and charcoal will be considered on their reproductive value as well as artistic merit (If the printer can reproduce them clearly, we can't use them)" See flyer above.)

Submissions to part 1 to Black Unicorn Press, KL Smithline... part 2 to Caitlin Rothermel, Lace Neon Press" note: fandom is not specified. A 1986 statement in Southern Enclave: "Due to a severe lack of material, publication of my letterzine, "Perspective," will be suspended indefinitely.
