"In a barbarous distant future, the youth Thorinn explores a subterranean realm, finding remnants of machine civilization." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 426. This episodic, pretty confused story, has remnants of a machine civilization inside the Earth at "the bottom of the world."
