A Book in 6 Words

 In Wired Magazine,  a recent article appeared that challenged famous authors to write a book in 6 words. Here are some of the results:

“For Sale; baby shoes, never worn.”- Hemingway

“Epitaph: Foolish humans, never escaped Earth.”- Vernor Vinge

“Cellar?” “Gate to , uh…hell, actually.”- Ronald Moore

“Gown removed carelessly, head, less so.” – Joss Whedon

I wish I was a good enough writer to do this. I can’t say anything in less than 60,000 words!

  • geez, Firefly is the best sci-fi TV series. i just hope that Joss Whedon revives that*.-
