Long before the invention of aircraft, automobiles and
submarines, 19th century author Jules Verne described
those modes of transportation in dozens of novels and
short stories. The author of those tales of extraordinary
voyages will be the focus of Extraordinary Voyages:
Jules Verne and Beyond: The 2009 Eaton Conference,
presented by the UCR Libraries' Eaton Science Fiction
Collection and the College of Humanities, Arts and
Social Sciences in coordination with the North American
Jules Verne Society.
