    When Tom's wife leaves town, he's looking forward to a week of debauchery with his hot young girlfriend Miranda, but first, he must spread lime in the crawlspace. But what will he do when he's locked inside? Crawlspace is a short story of claustrophobic terror. Imagine your spouse f...

    An eerie, claustrophobic horror tale that gut punches you two thirds in, but well worth the ride. When husband Tom decides to work in the crawlspace under his house, while daydreaming about his upcoming tryst with his mistress, he gets much more than he bargained for. Highly recomm...

    This story needed another round of edits. Some sentences were horribly broken, some metaphors were way overblown. Did the door to the crawlspace open inward or outward? There seemed to be some confusion in the text about this somewhat important detail. The story itself wasn't bad. ...

    More like 3.75 stars for me, but it was good enough for me to round up rather than down... What a very Staphen King, mess with your head sort of tale about Tom, his girlfriend Miranda, and his wife Kelly. It wasn't what I expected, and the end just leaves you with a "What just happ...

    Oh, Evans Light, how you creeped me out with this story! How far will a scorned wife go to teach her cheating husband a lesson in fidelity? Ladies, just let your man read this story and I doubt he will even think about straying (okay, I'm just kidding...kinda). This story is cr...

    What a treat this story was! Tom thinks he's in for a week of romantic escapades with his young lover while his wife is away - that is, until he ends up trapped in the crawl space under his house. This story was vicious, dark, gruesome, and a ton of fun! Evans Light is very tale...

    A man finds himself near bottom after losing his job and having his marriage crumbing more and more. As his family leaves to visit relatives, he stays behind to do some needed repairs on the home. The main job is to get rid of the moisture in the crawlspace. The job turns into a nightm...

    3.5 First of all, I have to admit that I am more than biased. Cheating is something that ruins any story for me even if it is only mentioned. It overshadows everything else. I can't help it. Maybe in the future I'll stop being annoyed, but now it's simply something that I hate in book...

    This was the second story I've read from Evans light. It was a very short one, but it was advertised as short and Very reasonably priced as free! Was a good little story though. I actually started to feel a bit claustrophobic while reading it. I'm not overly keen on the ending,I thin...

    I have no idea why this kept going through my head while I was reading CRAWLSPACE...but I kept thinking- What would MacGyver do? What would MacGyver do? But alas- Tom is no MacGyver... [image error] Tom is not a good husband. Tom is not a good father. Tom becomes a bit of a sl...

    Tom has a secret only it's not quite the secret he thinks it is. When his wife goes away for a week giving him an ultimatum to clear out the crawlspace he plans to do the job quickly and spend the remaining time with his lover. But things don't work out even remotely as he had planned....

    Holy tuna melt on a dried up pancake, Batman, what a story. I started this joker about an hour ago, and I burned through it like good weed. I'm one that will keep glancing at the percentage on my Kindle or to the remaining pages in a book to see how far I am from the finish line, but n...

    Evans Light, and his brother Adam, write some of the most excellent and creeptastic short stories you will ever read. Crawlspace is a prime example of Evans originality and his twisted mind. LOL He is a bestselling author and his short stories are a delight (?) to read. I feel co...

    This is a classic tale of karmic retribution. And I love that the source is ambigous...at least for awhile. This was nice and creepy, and would be right at home in any anthology of the horrific and macabre. In fact, this wouldn't seem a bit out of place in the new collection of King st...

    Crawlspace is a chilling story. The concept - being buried alive or trapped in a confined space - is familiar, the worst fears of many. But what made this story stand out was the author's ability to transport me into the body of his main character. I felt what Tom felt, experienced wha...

    Now I'm not claustrophobic in anyway, I've done Caving and going down Pot Holes, but Evans Light you've actually made me weary of tight spaces. Tom I didn't really feel sorry for after a read he left his little girl for several hours on the porch, while lay in bed drowning in self p...

    This was a tasty morsel of horror done right. Having read more horror stories than I can count, this one went somewhere else entirely. The ending could not have been more chilling. ...

    It's difficult to imagine that just a short while ago, I didn't care much for short stories. But now I've seen the light...Evans Light! What an amazing writer! I've read a few of his stories and am incredibly impressed by his talent. His stories are so imaginative and written with such...

    Crawlspace was simply amazing! I devoured it in one quick, easy session. The whole time I read I kept thinking, "this can not be happening." It was intense and dramatic. It was awesome and painful at the same time. It was creepy, eerie, and fun. I wanted to sympathize with the main cha...

    I suffer from claustrophobia. Don't try to lock me in a broom closet or even a larger room. I will lose it completely and go ballistic. I have also had the misfortune of experiencing sensory deprivation so strong and darkness so complete that even after several minutes it did not di...

    This was a great short story. Very psychological. Just when you think you know something is going to happen, it does not. And when you are sure it won't, it does. I usually like to do my reviews from the heart and not add tons of info about who published it (no offense to anyone) or wh...

    Good god! Do not read this in the dark! I made the mistake of starting to read this story in the dark of my bedroom with only the Kindle Paperwhite as light... Big mistake. The moment Tom shuffled off beneath the house, and into the crawlspace beneath I was overwhelmed with...

    Whoa! The ending! *Big eyes, nervous giggle, shudders* There are some great, shiver inducing moments in this short story. The whole claustrophobic theme had me involuntarily taking deep breaths throughout. Crawlspace is an uncomfortable read. Tom's introduction, in just a few li...
