And so to Bed, Ceridwen Dovey , Eliza Bell , single work short story
Richard Cooke, On Robyn Davidson, Louise Swinn , single work review
— Review of Richard Cooke on Robyn Davidson Richard Cooke , 2020 single work essay ;

'It begins with lightkeeper Esther Nunn, inspired after she is sent Tracks by a friend. Or it begins with author Anna Krien, for whom Robyn Davidson has been a moral compass since, as a child, Krien saw Davidson on the cover of National Geographic. Or it begins with Richard Cooke’s wife, Loulou, similarly smitten. The story really begins long before those moments though, before the 1980 publication of Davidson’s influential Tracks, when journalists travelled to interview “the camel lady” while she was on her now-famous journey. Cooke seeks to understand the appeal of Davidson and, while he keeps his enthusiasm in check, he clearly numbers among those who have been inspired.' (Introduction)

Elizabeth Tan, Smart Ovens for Lonely People, Leah Jing McIntosh , single work review
— Review of Smart Ovens for Lonely People Elizabeth Tan , 2020 selected work short story ;

'As a frantic March rolled into an accepting April, sliding into a complacent May, the “apocalypse”, now boring, has disappeared into June. The “new normal” became old in the time it took to say the phrase; in supermarket aisles, I’m the only person wearing a mask. As if becoming bored of a virus could make it vanish.' (Introduction)
