Summary: 'The two beasts pass within a hundred yards of the raft and, with a fury that blinds them to our presence, hurl themselves upon each other'Jules Verne's pioneering science fiction classic tells the story of the distinguished but eccentric Professor Lidenbrock, who finds a scrap of parchment in an old manuscript. A cipher written in runes, it tells of an entrance to another world ndash; a world hidden beneath our own. So with his nephew reluctantly in tow, the Professor follows this c
ryptic clue down into a dormant volcano, and the further they descend, the more extraordinary the discoveries and creatures that they encounter, the greater the dangers, and the more ancient the living past that surrounds them.This new translation by Frank Wynne is accompanied by an introduction on the science of Verne's work and its influences. This edition also includes notes, a chronology and suggested further reading.Translated by Frank Wynne with an introduction and notes by Peter Cogman
