Science fiction stories in six words.

Science fiction stories in six words. Some by well known scifi authors. Click "Previous Articles" for earlier stories. For me, A.S. Byatt's is most haunting. A sub-genre of "Six Word Stories".

It's nice to see that AS Byatt takes time out of her busy schedule to post to a site where some of the commentators can't even count to six.
