With such books as Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, French author Jules Verne earned recognition as one of the founders of science fiction tales. Although, as one of those called “Fathers of Science Fiction,” Verne often said he had not aimed at seeming scientific, claiming, “I have invented nothing.” However, he did feel, “Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real.” As one of those “other” men he did exactly that in his marvelous description of Phileas Fogg and his remarkable journey Around the World in Eighty Days, a trip done without any modern transportation. You won’t have to pack your bags to join us in hearing the story first published in 1872.

Author Bio: Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
