About The Palik Series
The last two decades have brought astonishing progress in the study of Jules Verne, with new translations of Verne stories, including the discovery of many texts. Still, there remain a number of his stories that have been overlooked, and it is this gap that the North American Jules Verne Society seeks to fill in the Palik series.
Through the generosity of our late member, Edward Palik, and the pooling of expertise by a variety of Verne scholars and translators around the world, we will be able to bring to the Anglophone public a series of hitherto unknown Verne tales.
Ed Palik had a special enthusiasm for bringing neglected Verne stories to English-speaking readers, and this will be reflected in the series that bears his name. In this way the society hopes to fulfill the goal that Ed’s consideration has made possible. The volumes published will reveal the amazing range of Verne’s storytelling, in genres that may surprise those who only know his most famous stories. We hope to allow a better appreciation of the famous writer who has, for more than a century and a half, been the widest-read author of fiction in the world.
