Synopsis

Flat broke and stranded in a South American country, Ralph Gardiner is nursing a beer and contemplating the wreckage of his life. No money, no prospects, and worst of all ... the beer is warm. When a local businessman approaches him with a curious offer, Ralph decides he has nothing to lose ...

Light filtered through the canopy: an even, green glow.  A single beam of sunlight shone down onto a sick-looking bush, all brown leaves and white sticks.  As I approached it, a large fly settled on my arm.  I swatted it, and it buzzed away angrily.  I heard a rattle at my feet and looked down.  There were dozens of spent cartridges, glittering like gold against the broken, brown earth.
 I took another step towards the bush, then stretched out a hand and parted the branches.  A wave of cold rushed through my guts as I stared at a misshapen, blotchy face smeared with blackened blood.  As I yelled and jumped back, the creature grabbed for me with its shattered, twisted arms.
