The Father of Science Fiction

Today is Jules Verne's birthday.  The famous French author was born February 8, 1828 and died on March 24, 1905.  Known as the father of science fiction, Verne wrote many entertaining novels in which science played an important role.  Want to see a bibliography of Verne's books?  Hey, I work in a Library.  Can-do, for sure.  For a brief biography of the author and a short bibliography, click here.
