They're different. They don't even look like us. From New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Douglas Clegg comes a dark novelette of a village caught on the edge of fear. "Clegg's stories can chill the spine so effectively that the reader should keep paramedics on standby."-- Dean Koontz.
Someone should do something about them. When outsiders arrive to a quiet New England village, they bring weird customs and strange practices with them. One special summer night, something terrible happens in the village — brought on by those strangers, the ones who live out in the woods, the dangerous ones.
This novelette can also be found within the collection, Lights Out.
Funerary Rites is approximately 40 pages in print.
