Wired has a collection of Very Short Stories written by SF, fantasy, and horror writers. It’s fascinating to see what can be accomplished in six words. Some stunts, and a lot of reliance on known tropes, but most of them still work.
My favorite: Longed for him. Got him. Shit. – Margaret Atwood.
Tho’ Gregory Maguire’s (From torched skyscrapers, men grew wings.) and Charles Stross’s (Internet â€œwakes up?â€ Ridicu — no carrier.) are also kind of swell. Got a favorite? Want to write one?
