Strange Horizons just ran a very positive short review by Niall Harrison of Shackleton’s Man Goes South, which concludes that ‘it’s certainly the most distinctive and formally creative novel I’ve read this year.’

Harrison then deadpans a favourable comparison (and grouping) of Shackleton’s Man Goes South with ‘the year’s second museum exhibition science-fictional tie-in literary experiment’, Hari Kunzru’s very well received Memory Palace novella and exhibition currently at the V&A.
