Six Word Sci-Fi

Every month, Wired magazine hosts a contest challenging readers to write a story that’s only six words long in response to a given prompt. A formidable challenge, but not one beyond The City Voice! These are our writers’ entries in response to the June prompt: “In six words, write a story about a casual encounter with aliens.” Have a six word story you’d like to share? Submit it in the comments below.
