ABOVE is the SciFi timeline which established Jules Verne as the founder of “modern science fiction novels”. From 1863 to 1875, books by Jules Verne defined what SciFi novels contain. Then in 1895 to 1896, H. G. Wells became the next generation SciFi novelist, beginning with the “Time Machine”, 1895.
SciFi is usually a travelogue as a plot; and, all Jules Verne books use travel in them. Travelings of the protagonist, with foil-character in opposition to the antagonist is the formula.
- SciFi is escapist literature for readers, whose minds travel elsewhere in the stories. Travel in the Exosphere, Atmosphere, Hydrosphere and Lithosphere in SciFi stories.
- “Traveling solo is liberating. Unencumbered by the needs of others, you can do whatever you please, whenever you like.”
