Jules Verne (1828-1905) is widely recognised as one of the most influential writers in the Science Fiction genre. Although many of his ideas were based on the latest technology of his time, Verne's invention was such that works such as 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea', 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth' and 'Around the World in Eighty Days' continue to thrill readers more than a century later.
