Decisions, decisions, decisions

Editorial by Keith Stevenson

The following is based on a presentation to the EnVision Writer's Workshop in Brisbane, July 2003.

So dar, I've selected fiction for four issues of Aurealis. All of it (hopefully) good. When I was asked to EnVision to talk about what an editor looks for in a short story, it made me critically re-evaluate the fiction I had chosen for Aurealis issues #29 to #31. Every one of those stories had - for me - something special, and as I looked at them again, I began to see some common themes arising.
