About Jules Verne

Jules Verne was a French author who is considered to be the father of science fiction. He wrote some of the earliest works in the genre, including Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, and Around The World In Eighty Days. Not only did he write these classic stories that are still popular today, but his influence on literature and culture was vast.

Verne was born in 1828 in Nantes, France and had an early interest in writing. He quickly rose to fame with a series of books entitled Voyages Extraordinaires which were published from 1863-1905. These stories made use of scientific concepts such as evolution, space travel and submarines that were unheard of at the time but now seem commonplace. Find out more about Jules Verne at
