Meet the Author

Jules Gabriel Verne (French pronunciation: [?yl v??n]; February 8, 1828 � March 24, 1905) was a French author who pioneered the science-fiction genre.[1] He is best known for novels such as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before air travel and practical submarines were invented, and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the third most translated individual author in the world, according to Index Translationum.[citation needed] Some of his books have also been made into films. Verne, along with Hugo Gernsback and H. G. Wells, is often popularly referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction".[2]
