Twenty ways to die

The topic for this contest is: Twenty ways to die

Write a story that somehow incorporates the topic. The story does not have to be specifically about the topic. But should clearly incorporate the topic into the story.

Creative approaches are welcomed. But contest voters will be asked to consider the topic when making a choice for a winner.

A five-chapter book needs to be written covering twenty ways to die. (This does not have to be can be implied. Like those old movies where you hear screaming but see nothing and after it's all done you know they were eaten or stabbed...Things like that) The choice of how this is done is up to the author. For example, you can put together twenty murders in a mystery story, or you could write a story about space travel with twenty deaths... The kicker here is all twenty deaths have to be different and happen in different locations...Other than that It's up to the author.
