Jules Verne


Jules Verne (1828 – 1905) was a French author who pioneered the science fiction genre.

“Friend," replied Michael Strogoff, "Heaven reward thee for all thou hast done for me!" "Only fools expect reward on earth," replied the mujik.” ― from "Michael Strogoff; or the Courier of the Czar" In this 1876 "Mission Impossible" tale of intrigue set in Russia, a traitor has inspired the fierce Feofar Khan to invade Siberia and foment a rebellion. A sinister plot to assassinate the Czar's brother, the Grand Duke, is discovered but all telegraph lines have been cut. Only one of the Czar's couriers is qualified to handle the dangerous and arduous mission to warn the Siberian Governor General of the impending invasion... Michael Strogoff.

"Adieu, soleil! s'écria-t-il. Disparais, astre radieux ! Couche-toi sous cette mer libre et laisse une nuit de six mois étendre ses ombres sur mon nouveau domaine!" --Vingt mille lieues sous les mers (1869)

"Je ne puis peindre mon désespoir ; nul mot de la langue humaine ne rendrait mes sentiments. J’étais enterré vif, avec la perspective de mourir dans les tortures de la faim et de la soif." --Voyage au Centre de la Terre

Roughly ten years after it first aired on television, the mini-series for Jules Vern’s Mysterious Island is getting a Blu-ray release in Germany courtesy of Koch Media on September 10, 2015. Along with the Blu-ray, Koch will also be releasing the series on DVD and VOD.

"Or, quand un Américain a une idée, il cherche un second Américain qui la partage. Sont-ils trois, ils élisent un président et deux secrétaires. Quatre, ils nomment un archiviste, et le bureau fonctionne. Cinq, ils se convoquent en assemblée générale, et le club est constitué." --De la Terre à la Lune "Now when an American has an idea, he directly seeks a second American to share it. If there be three, they elect a president and two secretaries. Given four, they name a keeper of records, and the office is ready for work; five, they convene a general meeting, and the club is fully constituted." --From the Earth to the Moon (1865) by Jules Verne

Jules Verne: "I have another author on my list simply because I cannot choose between his adventure and science fiction works. His major works like Around the World in Eighty Days, Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea and Journey to the Centre of the Earth have been made into popular movies as well."
