Shackleton's Man Goes South
by Tony White

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.
