Read 'Whiteout' (Oni Press)
I've just received a proof of Robert Masello's Blood and Ice (US Feb 09, UK Mar 09) which spans time, genre and locations but seems to include a significant chunk of time/plot in Antarctica:
Troubled journalist Michael Wilde takes on a commission to write a feature about a remote research station deep in the frozen beauty of Antarctica. On a diving expedition in the polar sea he discovers two bodies encased in ice. The pair, a man and a woman chained together, their dress from the nineteenth-century, are brought to the surface - along with a trunk containing a strange, but sinister cargo. As the ice around them begins to thaw, the mystery of these time-bound lovers begins to unravel.Michael is gradually drawn into a horrific story that starts in the London barracks in the 1850s and leads to the bloody battlefields of the Crimea and the tragic Charge of the Light Brigade. Now, in the Antarctic wastes, the Cavalry officer and his lover are reawakened into a world where the midnight sun lasts for months, where there's nowhere to hide and no place left for the living to run...In this chilling supernatural thriller, spanning five continents and several centuries, Robert Masello weaves together an extraordinary tale of eternal life and undying love. Gripping and intensely moving, "Blood and Ice" will take its readers on an enthralling, and unforgettable journey.
Anyone know of any other titles set in Antarctica?
