I saw "9 miles down" last night. From the Red Box. It really isn't much about underground. More about hallucinogens or evil or both. Hard to tell. The hole in the ground never comes much into play.

47,000 feet down is quite a lot, just as 47,000 feet up is.

One of the Sherlock Holmes stories involved a body being transported across London on the roof of a Metropolitan Railway train. I can't remember which story that was, but I could probably find it if anyone is interested.
I know this is an old-ish thread, but it happens that I just came across the Sherlock Holmes story I was trying to remember.

In case anyone's still interested, it's The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans - a very apt story for those with an interest in London Underground lore.

Metro by Alexander Kaletski. Awesome book based on a real-life escape from Soviet Russia. Wish I could get it in e-book format. A forgotten classic.

It might not be published in e-book format, but Amazon in the UK have got a seller supposedly offering the paperback for one penny (UK).

I meant to ask. "How is the game?" "What platform?"

The Relequary by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child deals heavily with the homeless who live within the New York subway system
