"Meet the father of science fiction, Jule Verne. Born in France in 1828, Jules Verne always dreamed of adventure. At age 11, he snuck onboard a ship headed for the Indies only to be discovered by his father and have his dreams dashed. After his father made him swear to only travel "in his imagination," Verne kept his promise for the rest of his life. He began writing adventure stories as a young man and became a popular writer throughout France. Known for mixing scientific discovery and literature in his books like Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in 80 Days, Verne is often called "The Father of Science Fiction.""-- Provided by publisher.

I definitely understand the appeal of this series of biographies, and I enjoyed this look at such an interesting author. However, I do object to the crown of "father of science fiction" laid upon him--anyone ever hear of an author by the name of Mary Shelley?
