Re-writing mariusa's example from
a: function(callback) {
fs.readFile('a.html', 'utf8', function(err, a) {
if (err) callback(err);
console.log('read a');
callback(null, a);
b: function(callback) {
fs.readFile('b.html', 'utf8', function(err, b) {
if (err) callback(err);
console.log('read b');
callback(null, b);
}, function (err, results) {
console.log('a:' + results.a);
console.log('b:' + results.b);

You know this is incorrect right? The callback would get called twice in the parallel functions. Either place the second callback in an else block or use if (err) **return** callback(err);
