Feb. 8: Jules Verne, French novelist


Jules Verne (1828-1905) famed French novelist, poet, and playwright who contributed greatly to the development of science fiction. Perhaps his best-known work (due to its filmed versions) is Around the World in Eighty Days, and for the same reason Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. But Journey to the Center of the Earth and From the Earth to the Moon have also proven enduring; alas about 50 more not so much.
