Bored with inactivity following the end of the Civil War, members of the American Gun Club look for a project that will fulfil their passion for firearms. After much frustration, club President Barbicane proposes an exciting new endeavour – one that will cement their names in history: they will build the largest projectile ever known to man and shoot it at the moon. The bullet will be hollowed to fit the club’s president and two companions, along with their dog, and they will claim the moon as America’s 37th state. From the Earth to the Moon describes the events leading up to the launch of the projectile, while Around the Moon follows its journey in outer space.

Author Bio: Jules Verne

Author Bio: Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
