This carefully crafted ebook: "From the Earth to the Moon + Around the Moon" contains 2 books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. From the Earth to the Moon is a humorous science fantasy story written in 1865 by Jules Verne and is one of the earliest entries in that genre. It tells the story of three well-to-do members of a post-American Civil War gun club who build an enormous sky-facing columbiad and ride a spaceship fired from it to the moon. Around the Moon, Jules Verne's sequel to From the Earth to the Moon, is a science fiction novel continuing the trip to the moon which left the reader in suspense after the previous novel.
Jules Verne (1828-1905) was a French novelist who pioneered the genre of science fiction. A true visionary with an extraordinary talent for writing adventure stories, his writings incorporated the latest scientific knowledge of his day and envisioned technological developments that were years ahead of their time. Verne wrote about undersea, air, and space travel long before any navigable or practical craft were invented.
Verne wrote over 50 novels and numerous short stories.

Biographie de Jules Verne

Jules Verne was born in 1828 in France and was the eldest of five children. As a child he developed a great interest in travel and exploration, which showed in his writing. After completing his studies Jules traveled to Paris to study law. When his father learned he was writing instead, he withdrew his financial support and Jules had to support himself as a stockbroker. His true talent was in telling stories of extravagant voyages and adventures.
He married Honorine de Viane Morel in 1857 and she continued to encourage his writing. Jules met an important French publisher, Pierre Jules Hetzel who helped improve Jules' writing and published his stories. In 1887 Jules entered politics for the next fifteen years. His books were written before the invention of airplanes, submarines, guided missiles or satellites, and he took his readers all over the world.
He died in 1905 with diabetes. In 1989 Jules' grandson found a novel written in 1863 called Paris in the 20th Century. It was published in 1994.
