I was reading the November issue of Wired this morning on the bus and read this clever series of 6-word science fiction stories. I thought you’d enjoy these:
Epitaph: Foolish humans, never escaped Earth.
– Vernor Vinge
We went solar; sun went nova.
– Ken MacLeod
TIME MACHINE REACHES FUTURE!!! … nobody there …
– Harry Harrison
Computer, did we bring batteries? Computer?
– Eileen Gunn
And here’s one that didn’t make the print edition:
Dinosaurs return. Want their oil back.
– David Brin
