Notices which I like to imagine were posted to the same fictional noticeboard as Ernest Hemmingway’s six-word Baby Shoes story:

For sale: wedding dress. Slightly bloodstained.

For sale: burial shroud. Barely used.

For sale: coffin. One careful owner.

For sale: Bronze-age armour. Mint condition.

For sale: forbidden tome. Going cheap.

For sale: cauldron, broomstick. Both charred.

For sale: Danish longsword. Sometimes screams.

For sale: notebook. Pages blank. Usually.

For sale: lead ring. Previously gold.

For sale: weighted cube. Doesn’t speak.

For sale: Asia. All of it.

For sale: human heart. Badly broken.
