Wired Magazine Short Stories

In the November issue of Wired magazine (not pictured) they enlist 33 writers to write really, really short stories. They can be only six words long. For instance: "Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so." by Joss Whedon. "Wasted day. Wasted life. Dessert Please." Steven Meretzky. "Epitaph: Foolish humans, never escaped Earth." Vernor Vinge."1940: Young Hitler, such a cator." Michael Moorcock These any many more succinct, tight, edgy examples of minimal language...which is why I like blogs so much!

Here's one from Hemingway:
"For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn."

Apparently, it qualifies as a complete work of fiction.
