I've been looking for books set in Antarctica for the challenge and thought I'd share the list with you guys:
1. The Birthday Boys - I've read this and it's pretty good.
2. Death on the Ice - I'm going to try for this one.
14. Voyage along the Horizon
16. Blood and Ice
17. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay - This one keeps showing up in my searches for Antarctic fiction, but I'm not sure why...(ETA: it does have an Antarctica setting - M/C is posted to Antarctica during WWII)
18. The Nature of Ice
19. The Sea Lions
20. Cold Skin by Albert Sanchez Pinol - http://www.paperbackswap.com/Cold-Skin-Novel-Albert-Sanchez-Pinol/book/0374182396/
I wouldn't say that all of these are technically historical fiction, but they do have enough history to squeak by, I think.
If you know of others, please post about them here!

I came across a title at BCO that may qualify. One Day the Ice Will Reveal All Its Dead by Clare Dudman is biographical fiction about German meteorologist Alfred Wegener, who devised the theory of continental drift.
I found another one and this is the one I'm going to read, I think.
Cold Skin by Albert Sanchez Pinol - Cold Skin
It's actually a horror novel, I think, but since it is set just after WWI, I am going to announce a brand new genre called "Historical Horror" and say it works for this challenge. :-D
Also, number 17, "The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay", definitely does work for this challenge because the M/C is posted to Antartica during WWII. I have this one, too, so if Cold Skin doesn't work out, I'm trying this one next.
