Rando Calrissian edited the description of The Extraordinary Voyage of Jules Verne Wednesday, November 10, 2010.
From the Author:
Three years ago I had the idea for the Jules Verne anthology, to commemorate the centenary of his death in 1905. In the course of reading a lot of Verne’s novels and stories, and a couple of books about his life, the idea for this novella came to me.
Verne features as the central character, and we follow him through time – from Paris in the 1800s, back to the Cretaceous, and eventually into the far future. It’s an unabashed homage to his work, featuring many of his ideas – a headlong adventure full of all the usual Vernian tropes, plus a few things he never got round to writing about – like time travel and aliens.
