"Few visit the glaciated world of Myung's Misstep except on business, and fewer stay. This moon orbits the gas giant Big Myung at right angles to its orbital plane, such that the southern hemisphere of Myung's Misstep never experiences darkness.
"Nunataks, pyramidal peaks, and arêtes rise above the ice, and in the southern latitudes sprawl polynyas and lakes melted by geothermal vents below. In a scattering of alternately windswept and snow-buried industrial towns live humans, mostly descended from refugees of the Monocerian Emirates. Their economy depends on the mining and export of ancient heavy-water ice (especially 3H2 18O), popular in the luxury cocktail market."
