    'As the editor for this autumn 2018 issue of Overland online, I read almost 450 stories. I had to think quite intently on which, in my opinion, four stories could represent the magazine Overland.

    'Why did I relate to the stories I chose? The stories stand out because they have characters with complex lives. They are struggling with adversity, but are alive to life. The stories are written in scenes, not long descriptive passages or discursive dialogue. These are narratives that go to the heart of the matter and arrive there from the first sentence. The writing has a voice, tone and a story arc. The language is simple. And definitely not too many adjectives and adverbs.' (Linda Godfrey, Editorial introduction)
