"For sale: baby shoes, never worn"

I like my fiction short, but six words? A wonderful six-word short story by Ernest Hemingway, reproduced in full in the headline of this post, inspired Wired to ask a bunch of "sci-fi, fantasy, and horror writers from the realms of books, TV, movies, and games" to write some of their own. Here are the results.

One that I particularly liked, by Margaret Atwood: "Starlet sex scandal. Giant squid involved."
