Some of them might leave you with a warm feeling, an apprehensive uneasiness, or a shiver of fear at the nape of your neck: a lonely little boy finds comfort in a dragon's egg; people turn blue (literally) when they think of sex; telephone calls to the past in search of a lost love; a new kind of life insurance that keeps people from dying forever.
