Not all novels, especially debut novels, are guaranteed trade reviews, so I consider it a privilege to have garnered reviews for South Pole Station in Library Journal (starred review) and Publishers Weekly. Both summarize the book quite well. Only the Publishers Weekly review is online at this time, but here's a pull quote from the Library Journal review:
"Shelby's first novel, based on a short story that won the Third Coast Fiction Prize, skillfully weaves science, climate change, politics, sociology, and art. All readers of fiction, particularly those interested in life in extreme climates, will find [South Pole Station] appealing."
