  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Issue 32, 2019

"Everything Gets Worse' by John O'Connor. In winter of 1912, as Robert Falcon Scott was striving to be the first to reach the South Pole, six of his men, known as the Northern Party, became stranded on the Victoria Land coast for 17 months. In this story that ranges from north to south and from past to present, John O’Connor chronicles the group’s efforts to remain not only alive but sane at “Inexpressible Island," a 9' x 12’ enclosure they hacked out of the ice, where they remained through the long months of winter darkness.
