Assorted Microfiction

A Story by Urquhart

Microfiction inspired by Very Short Stories Joss Whedon, Stephen Baxter, Neil Gaiman, Neal Stephenson and Frank Miller wrote my favorites. Surpisingly hard.

Living dead walk the earth. Funeral home goes out of business. Cemetery property values plummet.
Church erects lightning-rod. Congregation shrinks.

Buddhist protester arrested for arson, littering.

Cure for cancer found. Scientists begin work on cure for the cure for cancer.

USA wins World Cup. 'Revolutionary War is back on!' says England.'

Oil found in Sweden! American tanks fitted with snow treads.

Sarkozy initiates coup. France now an 'Umpire.'

Squid taught to communicate with humans. Signs exclusive contract with Japanese porn studio.

Wizard saves world. Riots begin. Everybody's a critic.

Epitaph: Forgot to feed the monster.

Honest man hunts unicorn; uses true libertarian as bait.

Man invents full immersion virtual reality television, complains there's nothing good on.

Chuck Norris dies, internet's irony quotient increases dramatically.

'Press the button' science urges. THE END

Author's Note

Originally I actually had quite a few about the zombie apocalypse, but decided to limit myself to just one. I apologize for the incredibly lame pun on #7, and just kill any merit it might have had I'll explain it now; Sarkozy is the French president, his party is the UMP. I'm most proud of the second to last one.
I will be adding more.
