Tiny Novel

Spanish Physicists have used new data storage techniques to pen the first paragraph of a book onto a silicon chip so small that the entire novel would fit on the tips of six human hairs.
The concept of writing things on small objects has been around for some time, and, face it, flash new storage techniques are about as interesting as a 21 page blockbusting press release on printer ribbon ink. But this act of micro-storage was done just to break the ice at a party to celebrate the 400th anniversary of publication of "Don Quixote" so we have to admire them.
Pictured below is my first novel on the chip.
