2020 began with firestorms raging through the country, followed by floods, and then a global pandemic that has changed how Australians think, feel and live. We all experienced this year differently, but one thing rings true for all of us: this is a year we won't forget. This anthology brings together original work from a diverse collection of Australian voices, from writers to scientists, journalists to historians, all expressing what 2020 meant to them. They write of ash falling from the sky, fish dying on riverbanks, loved ones lost, loved ones reunited, the historical resonance of fire and plague for Indigenous Australians, geopolitical tensions, the changed nature of travel, friendships rekindled on Zoom, the urgency of the Black Lives Matter movement, the state of the arts and the media, the importance of nurturing our inner lives, communities destroyed and communities rebuilding. FIRE FLOOD PLAGUE is a vital cultural record of the resilience and humanity needed in these extraordinary times.

The plague will encompass all the land - and will eventually spread to the whole world. Very soon - rice will become so expensive that no one can eat. The coronavirus disease has reached pandemic levels, infecting more than 530,000 people and killing more than 24,000 since it first appeared in China last November.
