Stories of filling in the blank. A man finds himself in a train station in India, with no idea how he got there or who he is. His memory gone, he has no choice but to let other people — police, doctors, friends, family — create an identity for him. In another story, people bid blind on the contents of abandoned storage units up for auction. (One tip: If you see large bags, go low; it's someone's old clothes.)
