Excerpt:
“He was about sink the clips in the wire when he found he wasn’t alone. Hanging upside down from the wire about ten feet away, a bat was watching him. … The line, in a matter of seconds, was solid with bats. … ’No!’ Something hit him in the center of the back and slapped him against the pole. He dropped the line phone to swing. Teeth bit through his pants. He punched downward and his arm came up sliced from the elbow to the wrist. He stared at it, amazed. In a hanging march, the bats on the wire walked toward him.”
