Writing science-fiction and fantasy is a specialized form of literary art that is at the far right of the “inspiring and thought-provoking” bell curve. The short-story is an art form all of it’s own and demands a steady and trained hand. Combining the two is down right daunting and one of the most noble and rewarding challenges of all. We are fans.
But a good science fiction/fantasy/horror short story written with only 6 words leaves us speechless.
So for your pleasure, Wired Magazine commissioned 6-word short stories from some of the best talent: Joss Whedon, Eileen Gunn, William Shatner and more. This was published quite some time ago, but since time is a construct for the mind we decided to post this anyway. Enjoy!
