Metamorphosis is the essence of experience.

Metamorphosis in folklore and literature transforms humans into animals, objects, or in the case of Kafka, a giant venomous bug.

Issue #14 considers metamorphosis at individual and social levels: from queer lit. and the rejection of binaries; to changing political structures and disruptions to the status quo; from the real to the fantastic. It invites readers to consider the meaning of transformation and how it shapes our perspectives of the world.
