In video games there is the concept of an infinite dungeon – an endlessly regenerating death labyrinth. There’s an intimate quality to a structure that remakes itself after each horrible demise and invites you to try again. Dungeons are the study of structures as living things. Their diet is your curiosity, and their luring plumage is gold and gems.  There is another kind of labyrinth — a zone that has been subtly, horribly altered by something beyond human understanding. It has a set of strange rules that must be understood to survive. In this zone, the opposite of survival is not death–it is change. (PB)
