Very Very Short Stories!

If you want some very quick but cool reading, and the right to claim you can quote an entire story from memory. Then have a look at this Wired asked a group of famous SF writers to each produce a short short story of approximately 6 words long. As a kind of tribute to Hemingway's story ("For sale: baby shoes, never worn.") apparently.

Any way the results are supprisingly cool so have a look!

"God said, 'Cancel Program GENESIS.' The universe ceased to exist."
