Jules Verne, prolific writer of such classics as FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON and 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, invented science fiction and gave millions of readers and movie watchers a bridge between romanticism and realism. THE JULES VERNE COMPANION, an insightful, illustrated collection of works defining the significance and magnitude of his work, includes such articles as "Two Glimpses of the Moon" by George Orwell, "Jules Verne and I" by H.G. Wells, "Astronaut by Gaslight" by William Golding, as well as essays by Jules Verne himself. A fascinating commentary on the world's greatest prophet of technology.
