Six Word Stories

Over at Wired they have a “collection”, if you will, of six word stories.

Hemingway once wrote a story in just six words (”For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”) and is said to have called it his best work. So we asked sci-fi, fantasy, and horror writers from the realms of books, TV, movies, and games to take a shot themselves.

Here are some of my favorites:

Vacuum collision. Orbits diverge. Farewell, love.
- David Brin

Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
- Joss Whedon

From torched skyscrapers, men grew wings.
- Gregory Maguire



Please, Don't Be Shy
