"Wrote six words; made short story"

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

That's a six-word short story. Read more of them, many from big names, on Wired.

Here's one of mine:

Met God today. Going home now.

I'm forgetting the name of this science-fiction writer who did the shortest Sci-Fi story ever. It was in the form of an administrative note. If you don't count the title, it's ONE word long:

Galactic alliance. Applicant : Earth.

God escaped in a red Lamborghini.
