Fiction: “Subterranean” by James Rollins describes a very scary world of monsters beneath Antarctica. It is definitely a work of fiction.

Fact: In the real world, Dr. Priscu and his team of researchers from Montana State University actually DID discover life under the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Here is a news clip:

“An expedition led by a Montana State University polar scientist has made international headlines following the unexpected discovery of the remains of tiny animals in a lake beneath more than a half mile of Antarctic ice.”
