Just how many stories ARE there? Got in the mail in a package from Amazon.com a big fat book called The Seven Basic Plots. In it a dorky British guy named Christopher Booker says that's how many stories there are.

  1. Rebirth
  2. Tragedy
  3. Comedy
  4. The Quest
  5. Voyage and Return
  6. Rags to Riches
  7. Overcoming the Monster
