FROM THE BACK COVER:
THE MASTERPIECE OF THE GRAND MASTER OF SCIENCE FICTION
Submarine voyages, aviation, space flight – all these predictions of the immortal Jules Verne have been or are being made realities, yet the theme of the book which has been declared his most thrilling masterpiece, the work which first brought him world fame, still surpasses in fiction the greatest efforts of science!
Yet, as one of his bibliographers wrote, “There is nothing in all the daring visions of this tale which even today our scientists would declare impossible. The interior of the Earth is still unknown.”
For many years this tremendously exciting adventure novel has been unavailable except in old, poorly translated versions. Ace Books now proudly present the first new Twentieth Century translation of a science-fiction classic no one who has ever read it can forget.
