Proton Reader is a new, not-for-profit speculative science fiction semiprozine made with ❤️ in northern California.

Our mission is to lift emerging voices, perspectives, and expressions in sci-fi & speculative fiction. Our founders are neurodiverse, bisexual, and happily married; we are especially excited to provide a publishing space for other ND writers from all walks of life.
