In Quantum Prose,  we promote international, experimental and hybrid voices that integrate science,  philosophy and literature, question dualistic thought and creatively integrate mind and matter, disciplines and ideas, into thought-provoking writing. We are interested in the possibilities of the quantum paradigm within contemporary culture in gaining a greater understanding of one of our central aspects of our existence: consciousness. Multilingualism and translation are an important part of mission. We invite submissions by poets, neuroscientists, artists, physicists, philosophers, experimental writers, architects, geometers and/or all of the above.

“Liminally landing between prose and poetry, science and art, philosophy and spirituality, The Hidden Third charismatically disseminates a new renaissance transmission, one highly pertinent for contemporary times. Leaving the reader breathless. Re-imagined, re-generated. Mind duly sanctified.”  – Gary P. Hampson

“The only possible points of comparison for Javier Moreno’s Alma, a book made of sentences, dealing with the materiality of the living, and obsessed with sorting, would be those texts that are most luminous and uncanny. Alma, unlike anything else I have read, brings together certain amazing qualities of Craig Dworkin’s “Legion” (which consists entirely of statements from a psychiatric diagnostic instrument), of the more radical of David Markson’s novels, and of the quietly fevered voices from the writing of Roberto Bolaño. Is it a soul? A novel? Interesting questions – but in any case, Alma is a configuration of words that demands to be sorted through, one that is compellingly unhinged, open and shut”  –Nick Montfort .       Read more |
