Quotable Thursday

This week I'm reading a sci-fi story, The Biomass Revolution by Nicholas Sansbury Smith. This is a very curious story, a revolution has taken place, citizens are now monitored and restricted by use of Artificial Intelligence, and citizens are told there are no survivors outside the walls of Tisea. In this passage, the main character, Spurious, is wandering through a decrepit neighborhood to visit his childhood home...
"The state of the buildings could not help but remind him of the refugee camp he visited less than a year ago. The camp was called Halo by the State, but was known by the locals as The Inferno. Its purpose was to house all immigrants captured and awaiting deportation. The conditions at Halo were atrocious, and the State purposely built the camp far away from Lunia, hiding the view from the State employees."
