Overview

Jules Verne, one of the founding fathers of science fiction, was the author of such thrilling and perennial favorites as Around the World in Eighty Days, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, as well as more than sixty other novels of adventure and exploration. One hundred years after his death, this magnificent new collection celebrates Verne's amazing vision. A host of today's top science fiction authors pay homage to Verne's genius with a series of stories inspired by his groundbreaking imagination and original characters. In this anthology are extraordinary voyages of discovery and adventure from the four corners of the globe, and even within it. Following the tradition of Verne's original tales, Ian Watson tells of a journey deep into the center of the Earth, where Verne himself does battle with occultist Nazis, and Adam Roberts takes us to latter-day California, where a descendant of Verne's character Hector Servadac is preparing for the end of the world as we know it. These and many more compelling adventures add up to an anthology that will introduce a new generation to the wonder of Jules Verne and delight readers already familiar with the master.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Published on the 100th anniversary of his death, The Mammoth Book of New Jules Verne Adventures pays homage to one of the founding fathers of science fiction, Jules Verne (1828-1905), with a collection of stories inspired by his classic adventure tales. Included in this truly mammoth anthology are 23 stories by genre luminaries Stephen Baxter, Brian Stableford, Peter Crowther, Kevin J. Anderson, and Paul Di Filippo.

Di Fillipo's "The Mysterious Iowans" reintroduces readers to one of Verne's most enigmatic characters, the megalomaniacal genius Robur. Thirty years after the resourceful survivors of Lincoln Island were rescued by Captain Nemo (see Verne's Mysterious Island) and founded a utopian society in middle America, Boston Herald writer Bingham Wheatstone visits the "beacon of superior living" to cover the festivities. But what he stumbles across could mean the stagnation of scientific advancement and eventual collapse of modern civilization. In "The Shoal" by Liz Williams, a man inspired by the Jules Verne Museum in Nantes, France, glimpses the scientific advancements of the glorious future -- and the forgotten past. Ian Watson's "Giant Dwarfs" revisits Verne's 1863 classic A Journey to the Center of the Earth. Complete with subterranean seas, massive dinosaurs, and strange humanoids, Watson adds his own twist: time-traveling Nazi explorers!

Whether it is at the center of the Earth or 20,000 leagues under the sea, this diverse collection of adventure and exploration stories is a must-read for science fiction aficionados of all ages, literary historians, and genre neophytes alike. Paul Goat Allen
