Wired asked an eclectic group of writers, filmmakers, actors and game designers to craft their best six-word flash fictions, and they published the results here. Some of my favorites:
Alan Moore: Machine. Unexpectedly, I’d invented a time
Bruce Sterling: It cost too much, staying human.
Richard Powers: Lie detector eyeglasses perfected: Civilization collapses.
Ursula K. LeGuin: Easy. Just touch the match to
Marc Laidlaw: Help! Trapped in a text adventure!
Margaret Atwood: Longed for him. Got him. Shit.
Orson Scott Card: Please, this is everything, I swear.
