Sometimes I even ask myself if all this has really happened, if its pictures dwell in truth in my memory, and not merely in my imagination. In my position as head inspector in the federal police department at Washington, urged on moreover by the desire, which has always been very strong in me, to investigate and understand everything which is mysterious, I naturally became much interested in these remarkable occurrences. And as I have been employed by the government in various important affairs and secret missions since I was a mere lad, it also happened very naturally that the head of my department placed In my charge this astonishing investigation, wherein I found myself wrestling with so many impenetrable mysteries.

About the Author

A master of science fiction writing, Jules Verne (1828–1905) brought the genre to life with his epic accounts of travel and adventure, with many of the technologies he described yet to be invented. His numerous notable works chart his fascination with any and every form of travel on, around, even under the Earth, displaying an almost child-like awe and appreciation of the unknown.
