6 Word Science Fiction Stories
According to legend, Ernest Hemingway was once asked to write a story in six words. He came up with “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”. Those 6 words sparked an interest in stories that have few words, but can challenge the imagination.
The same thing holds true for Science Fiction. Popular SciFi site io9.com is asking readers to submit their own science fiction 6 word stories. We would love to hear what our patrons can come up with.
So far at HCPL we’ve come up with a few fun ones.
Hotdogs in, spaceship launch, hotdogs out
Write some SciFi, change the world
End of world, best surfing ever
T-rex baseball, tough with little arms
Asteroid approaching, so long east coast
Last year's SciFi, this year's truth
