Jules Verne (1828-1905) was the first author to popularize the literary genre of science fiction. Written in 1898 and part of the author’s famous series Voyages Extraordinaires, The Mighty Orinoco tells the story of a young man’s search for his father along the then-uncharted Orinoco River of Venezuela. The text contains all the ingredients of a classic Verne scientific-adventure tale: exploration and discovery, humor and drama, dastardly villains and intrepid heroes, and a host of near-fatal encounters with crocodiles, jungle fever, Indians and outlaws — all set in a wonderfully exotic locale. The Mighty Orinoco also includes a unique twist that will appeal to feminists — readers will need to discover it for themselves. This Wesleyan edition features notes, and a critical introduction by renowned Verne scholar Walter James Miller, as well as reproductions of the illustrations from the original French edition. CONTRIBUTORS: Walter James Miller, Stanford Luce, Arthur B. Evans.

"A Drama in the Air" (French: "Un drame dans les airs") is an adventure short story by Jules Verne. Just as the narrator starts the ascent of his balloon, a stranger jumps into its car. The unexpected passenger's only intent is to take the balloon as high as it will go, even at the cost of his and pilot's life. The intruder takes advantage of the long journey to recount the history of incidents related to the epic of lighter-than-air travel.

Les jours suivants, on elargit ces boyaux, et on repare et perfectionne les autres en arriere: la place continue de faire un feu tres-vif contre nos ouvrages. Le 9, Sidney Smith quitte la rade et fait voile vers le Sud-est, ne laissant devant la place que deux fregates pour assurer les convois et le tenir au courant des operations du siege. Massena comprit qu'il ne s'etait montre d'abord a Reggio, puis a Gaete que pour l'engager a de faux mouvements de troupes, afin de tomber sur les points degarnis; mais il ne se laissa pas prendre a cette ruse; Cependant le peu de monde qu'il avait a sa disposition pour garder uu royaume qui offre une si grande etendue de cotes le toit dans l'impossibilite de proteger tous les points; ce fut la cause de la chute de Capri. Le depart de l'escadre laissa reprendre haleine aux troupes de siege: on avait diminue la force des grand' gardes en attendant Une decision positive sur le siege, qui paraissait plus que jamais converti en etroit blocus du cote de la terre. Dans la nuit du 11 au 2, on prolonge le boyau (13) en montant par le flanc gauche du Monte Secco; on lui donne 28 metres de long: on prolonge egalement le boyau (19), sur le flanc droit, tous les deux en forme de demi-paralleles: le feu de la place continue a etre tresVif...

Jules Verne, celebrated French author of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in 80 Days, wrote over 60 novels collected in the popular series "Voyages Extraordinaires." A handful of these have never been translated into English, including Invasion of the Sea, written in 1904 when large-scale canal digging was very much a part of the political, economic, and military strategy of the world's imperial powers. Instead of linking two seas, as existing canals (the Suez and the Panama) did, Verne proposed a canal that would create a sea in the heart of the Sahara Desert. The story raises a host of concerns -- environmental, cultural, and political. The proposed sea threatens the nomadic way of life of those Islamic tribes living on the site, and they declare war. The ensuing struggle is finally resolved only by a cataclysmic natural event. This Wesleyan edition features notes, appendices and an introduction by Verne scholar Arthur B. Evans, as well as reproductions of the illustrations from the original French edition.
