Since 1988 the Telegraph newspaper has organized a ‘mini saga’ competition.

A mini saga is a very short story and it was invented by the well known

science-fiction writer Brain Aldiss. He was working on a very long novel at

the time (three volumes) and he suddenly had the idea that it might be fun,

as a complete contrast, to try to tell a whole story in just 50 words. The

rules of the competition are simple. The text must be 50 words exactly and

it must tell a story. The best stories are published each year in book form.
