‘It is with words as with sunbeams - the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn’. So said British romantic poet Rob Southey, but how easy really is it to tell an entire story in just 25 words?

Apparently it is possible, but I can't imagine anybody could muster much more than a brief overview of the what the story is about.

"Enough", the Captain said. "We shall catch the whale, with properly tied knots, or die trying." Then they died.

He shot one bullet into his wife and another into their adopted son, and watched their naked bodies bleed on each other

These are cool. Not sure they can rightly be called "novels." "Short stories" possibly. "Flash fiction" is better.
