Very Short Stories...

Wired magazine has posted a series of science fiction 'stories' that are only 6 words long. It's a fun idea. Many are very clever. A couple of my favorites:

The baby’s blood type? Human, mostly.
- Orson Scott Card

Kirby had never eaten toes before.
- Kevin Smith

We went solar; sun went nova.
- Ken MacLeod

You can read the entire list here.

Ha! Good ones. How about: "Reading blogs takes all my time..."

I guess 'Reading blogs' would have been 'sci-fi' a few years ago. Soozcat, your cloning story was very funny.

This six-word story is fantastic. I'm going to be thinking them up all night now. Douglas Adams might have written:

"Arthur, hold onto your towel tightly."
