There should not be a comma there
The rule with a conjunction (the word ''and") and the words that follow it, is that you use a comma if the words after the conjunction could stand alone as a full sentence.
In this case "seem to involve more truth than actual events" is a phrase and could not stand alone as a sentence. (It has no subject to act on the verb "involve") so you do not use a comma in that case.
(If it read "and stories seem to involve more truth than actual events" then you would have a subject (stories) and a verb (involve) - and because that could stand alone as a sentence, in that case you would use a comma.
does this make sense? this rule comes up ALL the time in writing, so it's a good idea to learn it. do you understand the explanation?
