30 000 Leagues Undersea by Tom Vetter Summary

Journey with me into the abyss, a world far more dangerous than space!What's this book about? Life. Death. Imminent danger. Unexpected reprieve. Victory. Defeat. Success. Failure. Thermo-nuclear war. True love. Loss. High drama. Low comedy. Ronald Reagan. Mikhail Gorbachev. And Bond, James Bond.They're all here. Ninety amazing and entirely true tales of swash-buckling adventure on the sea and beneath it, as a boy grows into manhood steadfastly pursuing his lifelong dream, wins a million-to-one shot to become a Hydronaut, and lives a life of high adventure undersea exploring the abyss, a world far more dangerous than space.The author states:I have been trapped on the seafloor twice. Deluged by flooding as I dove a submarine to its maximum depth. In control of a submerged submarine on fire. Alone on a sinking boat at night, bailing to stay alive. Out of air with empty lungs while diving 90 feet down. Next to a fool about to light his cigarette as we stood on 66,000 gallons of high-octane gasoline. And I have had the chance to do and see amazing things, enough for ten lives.I have sailed 100,000 miles in submarines, dove more than three miles to the abyssal seafloor of the Pacific, and explored an alien world far more dangerous than space. I have gone to places on Earth no one else ever will. I found the first naval aviator ever recovered from the abyss. I mapped the wreckage of USS Thresher. And I held thermonuclear targeting steady on Mother Russia as President Reagan met Gorbachev in Reykjavik.In this book, I tell those stories and more, 90 stories of a life spent undersea. These are the good parts, cooked down to short tales you can read on a bus, a lunch break, or in your bunk before lights out.Join me. I will take you places no one else can. You will survive, I promise, and have a good time along the way. So come on-dive in!"e;At turns gripping, compelling, and simply enchanting, Vetter's 30,000 Leagues Undersea is a door straight into a breathtaking world few hu

Twenty Trillion Leagues Under the Sea by Adam Roberts Summary

It is 1958 and France's first nuclear submarine, Plongeur, leaves port for the first of its sea trials. On board, gathered together for the first time, one of the Navy's most experienced captains and a tiny skeleton crew of sailors, engineers and scientists. The Plongeur makes her first dive and goes down, and down and down... Out of control, the submarine plummets to a depth where the pressure will crush her hull, killing everyone on board, and beyond. The pressure builds, the hull protests, the crew prepare for death, the boat reaches the bottom of the sea and finds... nothing. Her final dive continues, the pressure begins to relent, but the depth gauge is useless. They have gone miles down. Hundreds of miles, thousands... And so it goes on. And on board the crew succumb to madness, betrayal, religious mania and murder. Has the Plongeur left the limits of our world and gone elsewhere? Contains 33 full-page pen and ink illustrations by acclaimed artist Mahendra Singh, who previously illustrated an edition of THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK. Adam Roberts and Mahendra Singh have revisited Jules Verne's classic SF novel, and together they have come up with a unique vision.

Journey Through the Impossible by Jules Verne Summary

The Prometheus Books edition is not only the first English translation, but also the first complete publication of Journey Through the Impossible...The inclusion of a very well written introduction by Jean-Michel Margot helped me more fully appreciate the importance and complexity of this work, as did the text of two reviews from 1882...This is a work for Verne afficionados, theater buffs or just those who enjoy a good story. Take a Journey Through the Impossible and you might see another side of the Father of Science Fiction.- WSFA Journal (Washington Science Fiction Association)Translated by Edward BaxterIntroduction by Jean-Michel Margot,President of the North American Jules Verne SocietyOriginal Artwork by Roger LeyonmarkJules Verne, the most translated novelist in the world and best known for books such as Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Seas and Around the World in Eighty Days, was also a prolific playwright. Journey Through the Impossible, a play of fantasy and science fiction, ran for 97 performances in Paris in 1882 and 1883. In the three acts, the characters go first to the center of the Earth, then under the sea, and finally to the planet Altor. Characters from Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Seas, From the Earth to the Moon, Doctor Ox, and Journey to the Center of the Earth appear again in Journey through the Impossible, including Captain Nemo, President Barbican, Michel Ardan, Doctor Ox, and Professor Lidenbrock.Verne wrote this play in the middle of his life, between his optimistic (science helps humanity and is good) and pessimistic (science is dangerous and bad) works; the play is a vehicle for Verne to ask himself and his readers whether science, technology, and the pursuit of knowledge are good or bad. He used the play to pose questions about life and wisdom that are still important in our time.The script of the play was lost to Verne scholars for almost a century, until the text was discovered in 1978 in the Archives of the Censorship Office o

The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne Summary

Although The Mysterious Island is technically a sequel to Vernes' enormously popular Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, this novel offers a vastly different take on similar thematic motifs. As with all of Verne's best-known works, The Mysterious Island is a masterpiece of the action-adventure genre, with a heaping dash of science fiction influence thrown in for good measure.
