Tell me a story, please! Involving robots, lasers, futuristic sharks, sunless worlds, sentient plants, or anything else you’ve got a mind for—and do it in just six words.

Write and then post your very own six-word science fiction mini-epics below, and then all there’s left to do is to start reading and star all your very favorites. I’ll be highlighting the best-ofs later this week!
