#7 – H. P. Lovecraft and Cosmic Horror – A Reader's History of Science Fiction
Jules Verne was perhaps the first author to systematically incorporate the latest science into his work, becoming one of the biggest minds behind the idea of science fiction. Yet his focus wasn’t so much on sci-fi as it was on adventure fiction. In this episode I explore how he contributed to the development of the genre.
Book recommendation: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas by Jules Verne.
