Labyrinth of Stone

‘Nothing changed in the labyrinth of stone. On Earth by this time the sun would have shifted quite a bit, but here the long lunar day held sway, [and] the sun seemed to keep hanging in the very same place, extinguishing the nearest stars, so that it was surrounded y a black void shot through with a kind of orange, radial haze.’

from ‘The Hunt’ in Mortal Engines by Stanislaw Lem
