Jules Verne

Jules Verne is one of the great iconic authors that just about everyone has read, and if they haven’t read his books they’ve seen one the movies based on it or have a general pop culture understanding of his works (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, anyone?). 

Today I’m bringing you not one, but two links that are related to Verne. The first  is Jules Verne: Collecting the Books and Ephemera of French Author Jules Verne.  There you’ll find the main page has easy navigation to all of the categories of the site. The categories are: Verne’s Works, Ephemera, Jules Verne Dictionary, Autographs, Images of Verne, Family Tree, Locations, Links, as well as Every Book Has a Story (blue link wedged between the header image and the categories), and the alphabetical title listing of any Jules Verne book in English and French. 

That is a lot of options, so my advice is to just dive into what catches your fancy. I headed for the Verne’s Works section. I knew of the major works beforehand but was pleasantly surprised to see how much is out there left to read. He was a very prolific writer. After that I checked out the Ephemera and the the Images of Verne.  I ended my visit in the Every Book Has a Story which takes an in-depth look at an actual book from 1875 and the story it has to tell. Definitely my cup of tea.

The second site I wanted to feature was this article from io9: Everything You Know About Jules Verne is Probably Wrong.  The article clears up some common pop culture misconceptions about the author Jules Verne and his works. 

There are six different points that are clarified about Jules Verne and his works throughout the article. I found it very interesting to see what the majority of people think about Verne’s writing and where they are wrong. The one that surprised me was that people think that Verne is primarily a children’s author, I’ve always thought of him as one of the foundation authors for the genre of Science Fiction.  

Go check out the article and see which point of clarification surprises you!

These are both awesome site about Jules Verne. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
