Radon is a triannual online journal publishing prose and poetry relating to science fiction, anarchism, transhumanism, and dystopia. We pay semi-professional rates.
We publish quality literature every January, May, and September.
Radon nominates its writers for nearly a dozen awards. They include the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, O. Henry Prize, Best Microfiction, PEN/Dau Short Story Prize, Best Small Fictions, New Weird Horror Award, Best Horror of the Year, and the Robert Siegel Prize.
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.
