“Tony White’s story is inspired by the discovery of a science fiction story written by George Clarke Simpson, and first published in the South Polar Times, the homemade “newspaper” produced by the crew of Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated 1911 Antarctic expedition. Simpson went on to become the director of the Met Office, and was interested in climate change throughout his life. “
“With Shackleton’s Man Goes South, Tony White has written a bold novel-cum-manifesto, a prophecy, satire, and warning, and a gripping polar allegory for the era of global warming and human trafficking. In the steps of Swift, Blake and Aldous Huxley, he brings a puzzlemaster’s ingenuity, a political observer’s despair, a voracious appetite for geo-political knowledge and a storyteller’s sense to create a stark vision of a future that may be coming sooner than anyone can bear to think.” – Marina Warner
