The Underground City
Or, The Black Indies

By Jules Verne

About This Book

In the coal mines of Scotland, a city is built beneath the earth. But whose is the evil hand that makes mischief and brings death to the workmen there? And who is the good sprite who now and again is able to ward off danger?

When a beautiful young girl is found in the one of the deserted corridors of an old mind, the good sprite is revealed — but she lives in fear? Will the good young man who loves her be able to protect her from the dangers that lurk beneath the earth and bring the evil-doer to light?

About Jules Verne

(1828-1905) Born in Nantes, France, Verne's first training was as a lawyer, but he soon turned to adventure writing. His first success was Cinq semaines en ballon (Five Weeks in a Balloon), and thereafter, he produced a long series of marvelous tales at the rate of approximately one a year for the next 25 years. His most successful books include Journey to the Center of the Earth, From the Earth to the Moon, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in 80 days.

Before any writing was ever labeled "science fiction," there were flights of imagination — what the author himself called voyages imaginaires — that anticipated a thrilling future, based on scientific marvels yet to come. Jules Verne was a writer of such stories.
