“The white light flashed again. Another soul emerged into the brightness from the black tunnel and dropped onto the conveyer belt. It was a short white fat one this time, no hair and a livid purple head. Joe Walters, sixty-five, American, choked on a fish bone the information said. Its eyes were still open; Deius hated it when they arrived like that. He knew the eyes couldn’t focus without air, but still it seemed to him that there was always a flash of terror when for one diabolical second the human soul realized that there was a world beyond planet Earth, one in which it couldn’t move or breathe, one in which soul-eating monsters lived.”
