|Sheherazade, the king's beautiful wife, was due to be executed at dawn - unless she could convince the king to change his mind. That night she told him a wonderful story which, as dawn came, she left unfinished. ``Will you let me live to finish the tale?`` she asked. ``Of course,`` said the king. ``I must know what happens next.`` Night after night, Sheherazade told story after story, always leaving the last one incomplete. And so for one thousand and one nights, she remained alive...
