"The Same in Any Language" - A boy, his father and the father's girlfriend visit a former leper colony in Greece where the father is drowned by the undead spirits of the lepers after the sun goes down. At the hotel the father's girlfriend attempts to comfort the boy and calls his mother. On the flight home the boy screams awakening from a nightmare in which his father is sitting next to him says "That's what I call getting some tongue!" and leans over to show him what he has in his mouth.

"A Street Was Chosen" - This story is written in a clinical style reporting results of an unethical psychological experiment where random individuals are chosen to be subjected to stressful stimuli leading to aggression and suicide.
