If you haven't read "The Inverted World" by Christopher Priest you should!

"A uniquely powerful novel of a society in decay. On a planet whose very nature is a mystery a massive decrepit city is pulled along a massive railway track, laying the line down before it as it progresses into the wilderness."

I read it many years ago and it gave me lots of inspiration…

...I felt it needed a Deus ex Machina at the end… :/

Like some incredible spaceship...

Would you mind if i were to try drawing one or two of these, using them as references for landscapes or, in this case, space ships?
