​​Happy three years to us, and welcome to Issue Twenty of Hermeneutic Chaos! As always, we are very grateful to you for the support we have received over the years, and the encouragement to contribute to the literary community in our own small ways. 


Our May edition comprises a set of incredible voices that communicate the truth of the world to the readers. These works push us to explore realms that lie beyond our commonplace vital agencies and seek a dialogue that allows a departure from the possibilities of language and form to demand something more from the society.


This issue is also very special because it carries the work of the award recipients of our inaugural Alice Sullivan Prize for Fiction. Congratulations to winner Tiah Tulic, finalists Ariel Zedric and Maggie Fern, and honorable mention Valerie Wu. We are so glad to receive the opportunity to publish your wonderful fiction.


We hope these voices speak to you the same way they have spoken to us.
