[Asking for a friend]: There is some sci-fi book I read at some point which I think was famous enough to be known by lots of folks in which the term "to scree" or "to skry" (or something very similar) was used to see the contents of people's minds (?) or the future (?). Help. Whats the actual term? And, what is the book and or series and or author?

I'm looking for a sci-fi artist's webpage. The only thing I remember is a (digital?) series of painting of a sprawling city inside a cylindrical crater (or possibly at the base of a tall spire). [more inside]
Does anyone know the title of this book? The setting is a metal-poor prison planet where the people have segmented into vaguely feudal societies that trade with their guards in orbit for iron. The protagonist's society has developed really fast regeneration, with the side effect that some of them start growing extraneous body parts which are harvested and sold up to orbit. Another society has learned to experience time at any speed, and yet a third has no particular super-powers but is the wealthiest of them all because they've got fantastic scholars whose theorems and designs are sold for iron. I read this novel in a school library seven years ago, as a hardcover with a picture of a guy lifting himself out of a hole or well in the ground. [more inside]
