Apr 17, Pamellia rated it it was amazing Shelves: What a delightful read! This is the best story I have read for a while. It's full of interesting characters which are amazingly developed for such a short story, action and suspense. We start out with a father and young girl, his baby, waiting for a subway train in the wee hours of the morning. The train is not on time, so waiting at am becomes frustrating for the father and a bit scary for the little girl. She has heard stories of people who live underneath the subways in the many tunnels. Her father assures her these people do not exist and there is no reason to be frightened.
The train does arrive and that's when the story really takes off. There are twist and turns for the train and also the story. Not too much more I can say without giving away the ending. I love a story that can be read in one sitting and this was such a story.
There was a lot to it for only a few pages, I think less than We get to know the characters, their emotions and their deeply guarded grieves and fears. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written story. I always enjoy Mr. Light's stories, but this has got to be my favorite so far. Thanks to the author for having this one for free, of course I jumped on the chance, having liked everything I've read by him so far.
I was intrigued by the idea of the people in the tunnels, the possibility of there being a whole separate civilization underground, how they might've adapted to living outside the norm I would've loved to read a big story just about that, lol. I thought this little short story was perfectly paced, and well-written.

I was immediately drawn in, wondering what was Thanks to the author for having this one for free, of course I jumped on the chance, having liked everything I've read by him so far. I was immediately drawn in, wondering what was going to happen to the people on the train. I had the feeling the main character and his daughter were up to something, but I wasn't sure exactly what until it was revealed. I liked how it played out though, but wouldn't have minded it being longer, give me more.
Another good one by this author, and I'm going to keep seeking out more of his work for sure. This is the third story I've read by Evans Light. If I, being honest I predicted the end almost immediately. This didn't ruin the story though, it still had a creepy feel to it. The tension building was really good! Light has a style of writing that makes his stories very easy to read.
I will definitely be checking out more. Once again Evans Light does not disappoint. Effective short story that has a unsurprising but decent twist to it.

The writing is engaging and the author managed to do a lot in just 20 pages. The small amount of detail offered about the mole people was enough to make me curious about what happens in their city. Interesting story and lead character that I wished had been a little bit longer. Reminded me of The Midnight Meat Train, but then again just stepping on a subway reminds me of that story, but this was a pretty good short in the same creepy venue beneath NYC.
I enjoyed it. This was a good horror short. Well done! View 1 comment. Creepy and sinister in its delivery, The Mole People Beneath The City is another literary acomplishment by Evans Light, who is fast becoming one of my favourite horror authors. Light uses the 'show not tell' method, or rather the 'hint at what you're not showing' method, to inspire a chill that seems to creep up your spine and grab you around the throat.

The Front Office Mole Mystery Suspense Short Story
Well, this is my favorite Evans Light story to date. The story has a pretty simple premise, and the reader may be able to guess the outcome.
But the way Light gets you to the finish is quite fun. There is a sort of subtlety to the plot which is actually very effective and suspenseful. I think the story works so well with me because there is a realism in the characters and the events and you begin to wonder just what is true and what is legend. That for me makes for a pretty scary story. View all 7 comments. Shelves: read , ebooks , horror , short-stories-novellas.
Fun and rather creepy short story by Light. I always love it when a recommendation by a virtual stranger on the Internet works out well thanks Andrea! I would be interested to see if Light expands the idea of the Mole People and the city underground, there is definitely something good here to work with to develop this world.

Uses an urban myth as a backdrop and while I suspected how the story would end I did not expect the involvement of certain characters. Nice little misdirect from the author.
