The Editorial by A.C. Buchanan
15 pronouns/10 genders

Ad Astra Per Aspera by Nino Cipri
15 lost genders/10 hard-hitting parenthetical asides

Volatile Patterns by Bogi Takács
15 space adventures/10 exploding culturally appropriative garment factories

Island, Ocean by Lauren E. Mitchell
15 beautiful lighthouse floors/10 merfolk beards

Sandals Full of Rainwater by A.E. Prevost
15 meaningful succulents/10 gramma
