About the Author

Jules Verne (1828–1905), a French novelist, poet, and playwright, is renowned for his adventure tales and profound influence on literary genre of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, Verne manifested an early fascination with travel and exploration, a passion that permeated his literary works. After studying law in Paris, Verne turned to writing, penning plays, short stories, and working in stock brokerage to support his literary pursuits. He burst into prominence with the novel 'Five Weeks in a Balloon' (1863), which began the acclaimed series 'Voyages Extraordinaires.' Verne's rich imagination coupled with an insightful incorporation of scientific and technological research earned him a reputation as a visionary and a storyteller who could compellingly translate the scientific advancements into captivating narratives. Notable works include 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea' (1870), 'Around the World in Eighty Days' (1873), and 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' (1864), each epitomizing Verne's enthrallment with exploration and adventure. He blazed a trail for future science fiction, crafting stories that featured space, air, and underwater travel long before they were realities. The compilation titled 'SF Boxed Set: 140+ Intergalactic Action Adventures, Dystopian Novels & Lost World Classics' attests to the vast repertoire and enduring appeal of Verne's literary output. His works not only prefigured many technological inventions but also reflected Verne's educational intent and his belief in science as a vehicle for progress. He remains a pivotal figure in world literature, with his works translated into multiple languages and inspiring generations with a yearning for discovery.
