Susan Clerc is a fan who was active in Blake's 7 fandom in the 1990s. Her primary fannish output was writing meta about the show and the fandom, reviewing fanfiction and participating in fan discussions. In the early 2000s she also wrote several academic articles about fandom. Both her fandom meta and academic writing often touch upon the topics of Gender and Fandom and slash. She was a fan of Roj Blake and, while liking Avon, was critical of what she perceived as excessive idealization of his character by fans.

  • Creator of Adrenaline and Soma Powered Blake's 7 Pages, one of the earliest Blake's 7 fansites in the Internet.
  • Collator of Blake-centered apazine Rallying Call in 1995-1996
