Six words

According to Wired, Ernest Hemingway said his best story was only six words long - "For sale: baby shoes, never worn". Wired asked sci-fi and fantasy writers to continue the six-word-story tradition, which is loads o' fun.

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

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

Tick tock tick tock tick tick.
- Neal Stephenson

Dinosaurs return. Want their oil back.
- David Brin

Leia: "Baby's yours." Luke: "Bad news…"
- Steven Meretzky

And my contribution: "Sun explodes. Tek Jansen stands alone."

A few days late here, but oh am I enjoying the six word short stories. Heh. And also, sad. And also, creepy.

P.S. Nice shoes.
