Overview

Eleven years after the disappearance of Edgar Allan Poe’s Arthur Gordon Pym aboard the Jane, wealthy American Jeorling is returning to the United States on the Halbrane when it encounters an iceberg on which is found a note indicating the fate of the Jane and its crew. The crew of the Halbrane, under the leadership of Captain Guy (brother to the captain of the Jane), undertakes to find and rescue the Jane’s remaining crew.

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, Jules Verne intended An Antarctic Mystery to complete the mystery of Pym’s fate, which was left open at the conclusion of Poe’s original work. A high-sea adventure, An Antarctic Mystery takes readers to the very edge of the world, where the mystery of Arthur Gordon Pym’s fate is eventually revealed.

Meet the Author

Jules Verne was a French writer and pioneer of the science fiction genre through novels like Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World in Eighty Days, A Journey to the Center of the Earth, and The Mysterious Island. A visionary, Verne wrote about air, space, and underwater travel long before the ability to travel in these realms was invented, and his works remain amongst the most translated, most continually reprinted, and most widely read books of all time. Jules Verne died in 1905 having paved the way for future science fiction writers and enthusiasts.
