Prolapse (later Relapse) is a British fanzine edited by Peter Weston.

Peter Weston had previously published Speculation. For his return to fanzine publishing, he originally launched Prolapse in 1983 as an apazine. In 2006, it was relaunched, and featured letters of comment on the previous two issues. With the fourth issue, Weston announced its focus from that point forward would be the history of British fandom. It was subtitled "The Time-Travelling Fanzine".

Highlights include the many older fans who contribute, such as Brian Aldiss, Harry Harrison, George Locke (Smoke), Mike Moorcock (A Fanzine Called Eustace), and Christopher Priest.

Other contributors include Judy Blish, Rob Henson (Chuch), John-Henri Holmberg, Peter Nicholls, Stan Nicholls, and Greg Pickersgill.

Art work and photography were contributed by Bill Burns, Keith Freeman, Sam Long, Mike Meara, Lars-Olav Strandberg, Ina Shorrock, Andrew Stephenson.

Also included was an extensive letter column with long letters from Claire Brialey (Journey Planet, Steve Green, Jim Linwood (Typo), Joseph Nicholas (Vector), Darroll Pardoe (Les Spinge), Rosmary Pardoe (Quark), Charles Platt (Beyond), Mark Plummer (Banana Wings, Doreen Rogers (Vector), Simone (Walsh) Restall (Seamonsters), Lloyd Penney (Torus),

Prolapse received the Nova Award for Best Fanzine in 2007 and 2008. It also received the FAAn Award for Best Fanzine in 2008. In early 2009, Weston amended the title to Relapse.
