This story or poem is for logged in supporters only! Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

There was a perfectly round shaft in the tunnel above them, daylight and fresh air spilling down through it to cast an oval on the floor below them. Reqem squinted into the brightness, trying to gauge a depth, and failing; the light went to a pinpoint at the end, implying an impossibly distance.

"How did they make such a thing?" Imain asked in wonder, gazing up. "It's so round. Even a drill through ice can't make something that perfectly shaped, and that's through rock. And so far, so straight!"

"We've passed these before," Reqem said thoughtfully. "Just never in daylight."

Author's Notes
