to all fans of the genre It takes a seemingly mundane event albeit one that comes with its own fears of travelling home on the underground and fills it with terror The pacing is spot on and it gets going almost immediately The scene is set deftly and as events unfurl it builds menace, and doesn t rely on cheap tricks to get its scares.I don t mind a bit of gore, or splatter based horror, but I much prefer horror which uses mood and suggestion to spin the terror The author manages just that here with his story The moods of fear and confusion are eloquently portrayed, and effectively It s not until near the end you get a glimpse of what is going, and even then all is not fully revealed we ll have to wait for the following novel to reveal.As with his previous works, I appreciated his talent for word play With short stories it s important to keep focused and not waste words, and a lot of craft is evident in the writing of this story.It s an interesting technique to use a short story to build interest in a forthcoming, and larger release It can often backfire if the short story doesn t stand on its own merits This story works well on its own, telling the story of Emily s journey home, yet still maintaining enough mystery to entice interest in the novel It s worked for me, and I can t wait for its release It s 4 am and after a boozy night out, Emily is trapped on the Night

tense and scary atmosphere especially from such a short read that touches perfectly on a primeval fear that there s something waiting out there in the dark we can feel it but we don t know what it is You might want to catch the bus after reading this Loved it.At the time of posting my review Signal Failure was free on TrappedDavid Wailing s horror novella Signal Failure is a heart pounding story full of terror and suspense A scary story that reminds me of the 2004 film Creep which captures the darkness and fear of an unknown presence hunting its prey in the London Underground Emily is returning home on the tube s Piccadilly line, from a night out, when the faltering train breaks down after Knightsbridge The next station should be South Kensington but the announcement stated the next station was Shroud Lane TrappedDavid Wailing s horror novella Signal Failure is a heart pounding story full of terror and suspense A scary story that reminds me of the 2004 film Creep which

breaks down after Knightsbridge The next station should be South Kensington but the announcement stated the next station was Shroud Lane and she s never heard of Shroud Lane The lights go out, the doors open and suddenly the security of a closed carriage is blown apart and the atmosphere of panic and dread rushes in The night is just about to turn into a horror story With a missing driver, Emily and fellow passengers decide to leave the train and walk to what they think was a disused station and possible safety Nothing about that is simple or appealing.As a short story, this really captures the terror of being trapped in underground tunnels with something lurking in the darkness With eerie old abandoned stations and an eclectic group of people, the anxiety and pursuit of safety seemsandremote muahahahaMany thanks to Richard for recommending this novella and I would say it s worth reading Next step will be the full novel from this author Under. Pretty good short story about a group of people who get stuck in the London Underground tube train at night All the train doors open up, the tunnel is dark and claustrophobic, the electricity goes off What happened to driver What is out there in the dark Eerie and captivating.
