Radon is a triannual online journal publishing prose and poetry relating to science fiction, anarchism, transhumanism, and dystopia. We are a paying market.
We publish quality literature every January, May, and September.
Radon nominates its writers for numerous awards. They include the Pushcart Prize, Rhysling Awards, O. Henry Prize, Best Microfiction, Best Small Fictions, and Best of the Net.
At Radon, we know what we love and hope you will share in our revelry. We strive to be a professional community for a unique blend of passions. Our goal is to amplify the voices of writers who see the world differently, who use story and verse to expose injustice and investigate our impending futures.
It is our vow to remain non-profit and transparent. We are here to embody the wholesome values of anarchy (direct democracy, equality, free association, mutual-aid) and provide an avenue for writers to join the conversation.
If you envision writing on Mars before you die, gleefully run toward the technological singularity, or want to fight back against the world, then you've found home. Welcome.
