BEFORE SCIENCE FICTION, THERE WAS JULES VERNE
In the late 19 Century, during a span of 42 years, Jules Verne wrote over 50 novels in the Voyages Extraordinaires collection. His style and subject matter shaped Science Fiction into the genre we now know. Verne led the way, and his amazing tales still delight us today.
The North American Jules Verne Society is pleased to present its first-ever anthology of short stories, written by a select group of modern authors, inspired by classics like Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and Around the World in Eighty Days, as well as Verne's many other works.
