From the Earth to the Moon

From the Earth to the Moon  (1873) 
by Jules Verne, translated by Lewis Page Mercier and Eleanor E. King

From the Earth to the Moon is a humorous science fantasy story written in 1865 by Jules Verne and is one of the earliest entries in that genre. It tells the story of three well-to-do members of a post-American Civil War gun club who build an enormous sky-facing columbiad and ride a spaceship fired from it to the moon. The actual trip into space is covered in Around the Moon, the 1870 novel that Verne wrote following 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Excerpted from From the Earth to the Moon on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
