Along with "20,000 Leagues," Verne was also famous for "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "Around the World in 80 Days" and is often referred to as one of the "Fathers of Science Fiction" with Hugo Gernsback ("Amazing Stories) and H.G. Wells ("The Time Machine," "War of the Worlds," "The Invisible Man").
We always enjoyed the Verne references in "Back to the Future III," wherein Doc Brown and Clara are both fans of his writings and eventually name their sons Jules and Verne.
Happy Birthday, Jules Verne!
