The Hall of Machines (MWEB)

This haunting story about an ancient and seemingly unending hall filled with mysterious machines has echoes of Borges and Arkady and Boris Strugatsky's Roadside Picnic.

This one is cool, but it's not for everyone. Some machines are more interesting than others. A few I feel like I have seen in real life, others are just downright disturbing!

The story was first published in The Eye of the Lens (1972).
