Here’s the full Table of Contents for Issue 9, our “Architectures” collection on sale February 10. These fabrics aren’t necessarily functions of grand cityscapes, and several of them are figurative. Saints and religions can be constructed alongside the raising of a starship; marine life can grow their own homes as well as reconstruct their sexes; ghastly erections can sprout up in the midst of toxic marriages and traditions; sand can sweep away from ancient stone long enough to hold a conversation; and builders of all kinds can be found on the surface of Mars—still subject to the restrictions of permits and committees even there.
