The "man who invented the future," Jules Verne created the prototype for modern science fiction.
His prophetic 1870 novel, featuring a bizarre underwater craft commanded by the brilliant and mysterious Captain Nemo, predated the submarine.
The crowning achievement of Verne's literary career, this fantastic adventure tale of underwater monsters and civilizations influenced H.
G. Wells and generations of writers.
