The Last Asteroid Book Cover Time Out of Place Book Cover This story is a sort-of sequel to the events in The Last Asteroid. You may already have spotted this!

The name of the ship-cum-iceball in this story is not a coincidence!

Sir Earnest Shackleton's ship Endurance stuck in ice The Endurance was the name of the ship that became icelocked and eventually destroyed in Sir Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated but ultimately heroic expedition to the South Pole.

Remarkably, despite the slow but ultimately complete destruction and eventual sinking of the Endurance itself, the entire crew were rescued safely months later.

This story has a different combination of ship and ice, but the parallels are interesting nonetheless.
