What Happens Underground?

Happy Halloween!!!

What is more spooky than what might happen underground?

Fourteen writers answered the call to think about the meaning of "underground"and write a story. for the annual the Northwest Independent Writers Association anthology. This one is titled Underground.

There were no genre limitations, though it seems that most people leaned toward SF and Fantasy. The always thoughtful Jennifer Willis was the editor.
