Discarded Pieces, David Coleman , single work short story

'Amidst a twisting field of rapidly freezing wreckage, she floated, miraculously unharmed. She looked around carefully, just her eyes moving within the slowly cartwheeling exoskeleton, worried that even a head movement might attract attention of the very worst kind.' (Publication extract)

Enfolded, Michael Melican , single work short story
'Even in the dim light I easily made out the man I was here to see. He was young, fashionable, loaded with tech, a sleek laptop and a smartphone on the table in front of him, expensive headphones around his neck. The girl he was talking to was close enough that she had to be someone he knew, but he was awkward, stilted. I could make out a little of their conversation, but nothing meaningful. He said cool like it was punctuation.' (Publication extract)
Preparation : the Key to Effective EBook Marketing, Shane M. Brown , single work essay

'Anyone who read my articles in Aurealis last year will recognise a common theme.

'I write about online publishing and marketing.

'I won’t be repeating it here, and I’ll tell you why:

'I find online marketing incredibly boring!' (Publication extract)

The Secret History of Australia - Wally Grogan, King of the Legumes, Michael Pryor , single work short story
'Cousin of V B Grogan, the famous mountaineer and hypnotist, Wally Grogan was interested in horticulture from an early age after he accidentally composted his teddy bear. As a teenager he enjoyed experimenting with mulches and groundcovers, and his cactus garden was the talk of the neighbourhood after it accidentally foiled a burglar’s attempt to break into the family’s Geelong (Vic) home.' (Publication extract)
The Future History of the Flying Car Part One, Terry Wood , single work essay
'George Jetson heads off each morning in his flying car. Drops off the kids at school (literally). Jane takes his cash (they still had cash?) to go shopping, then he arrives at work, presses a button and his flying car folds into a suitcase. He hops onto the people mover, arrives at his desk and puts up his feet.' (Publication extract)
