Jules Verne (1828 - 1905) French writer. He is considered by many the father of modern science fiction and the progenitor of Steam-Punk. He wrote more than 50 novels, some of the most popular being: "A Journey to the Center of the Earth", "Around the World in Eighty Days" and "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea". And as can be seen- he was and is trend-setting to the end!
