"The superstitious belief, common to miners, that gnomes or fiends dwell within the bowels of the earth, began to seize me. I shuddered at the thought of descending further and braving the inhabitants of this nether valley. Nor indeed could I have done so without ropes, as from the spot I had reached to the bottom of the chasm the sides of the rock sank down abrupt, smooth, and sheer.

Plot bullets


  • A man descends a mine, into a new world inside the Earth.

  • The people of this world are advanced and powerful but not aggressive.

  • They learn of the violent, backward race above, and they fear interaction.

  • They feel that they must prevent the man from returning to his world. The upper world must never know of them.

  • It is just a matter of time, before the two societies meet. It is a matter of time, before the surface world must deal with, The Coming Race.
