Nils Helmer Frome (1918 -1962) was a zinester from British Columbia, Canada.

Nils Helmer Frome is likely the first Canadian zinester. Frome was the publisher of Supramundane Stories, a Science Fiction fanzine which is believed to be the first Science Fiction zine to appear in Canada, and perhaps the first zine to be published in Canada. The first issue was published by Frome in 1937. The second issue appeared in 1938. It contained two pieces by H. P. Lovecraft; "Nyarlathotep" and "Notes On Writing Weird Fiction". Other contributors included Rider Haggard and Ashton Smith.

Only two issues were ever published, although Frome remained active in Science Fiction fandom clubs and circles. Nils Frome was also a contributor to the 1940's SF fanzine Canadian Fandom.
