Keraban is a stubborn, headstrong man from Istanbul, whose life changes all of a sudden ... because of a simple tax. Keraban is a man of principles. He finds out that a new tax is required for crossing the Bosphorus by boat. However rather than paying it, he decides to take a way longer trip which will cost him more money, time and may as well put his life in danger. What will happen? Who wants to make sure that Keraban will not make it on time for another arrangement he has? Will Keraban live to find out who is the villain in the story? Jules Verne’s novel "Keraban the Inflexible" from 1883 interweaves danger and adventure by taking us on an exotic trip around Turkey. Jules Verne (1828-1905) was a French novelist who mostly wrote adventure fiction inspired by the scientific advances of the 19th century. With the help of editor Pierre-Jules Hetzel he wrote a series of books called "Extraordinary Travels", which includes "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (1864), "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" (1870), and "Around the World in Eighty Days" (1873). Widely popular with both children and adults, Verne is one of the most translated authors of all times, and still inspires people the world over.

Jules Verne, a 19th-century French author, is famed for such revolutionary science-fiction novels as “Around the World in Eighty Days” and “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”. He has sometimes been called the "Father of Science Fiction", a title that has also been given to H. G. Wells and Hugo Gernsback. In all, Verne authored more than 60 books (most notably the 54 novels comprising the “Voyages Extraordinaires”), as well as dozens of plays, short stories and librettos. He conjured hundreds of memorable characters and imagined countless innovations years before their time, including the submarine, space travel, terrestrial flight and deep-sea exploration. Verne is generally considered a major literary author in France and most of Europe, where he has had a wide influence on the literary avant-garde and on surrealism. Verne has been the second most-translated author in the world since 1979, ranking between Agatha Christie and William Shakespeare. Some of the works appear only in their original French texts, due to copyright restrictions.

Volume 1 of the Palik Series, published in conjunction with the North American Jules Verne Society Jules Verne is the acclaimed author of such pioneering science fiction as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Journey to the Center of the Earth. Yet he also wrote much more, including stories never before translated into English, which will be presented for the first time in the Palik series, under the auspices of the North American Jules Verne Society. Foreshadowing such classics as Around the World in 80 Days, this inaugural volume focuses on two of Verne’s earliest humorous stories, The Marriage of Mr. Anselme des Tilleuls and Jédédias Jamet, or The Tale of an Inheritance. Translation is provided by Edward Baxter and Kieran O’Driscoll, two of the leading Verne experts; critical commentary examines both stories, and scholars explore why some of the author’s stories were overlooked for so many years. Foreword by Brian Taves; Introduction by Walter James Miller; The Marriage of Mr. Anselme des Tilleuls translated by Edward Baxter, with a preface and notes by Jean-Michel Margot, afterword by Edward Baxter; Appendix: Jédédias Jamet, or The Tale of an Inheritance translated, and with a preface and annotations, by Kieran M. O’Driscoll. This series is published in conjunction with the North American Jules Verne Society, najvs.org.

Nine students from London’s Antillean School receive travel scholarships to visit their island homelands in the Caribbean. Accompanied by their eccentric Latin professor, they set sail on what they expect to be a thrilling educational voyage. Little do they realize that, prior to their arrival on board, their ship had been hijacked by escaped convicts who murdered its original captain and crew. This is the only novel by the legendary Jules Verne that has never been available in English until now. Although ostensibly written for an adolescent audience, its suspense-filled plot, sophisticated narrative style, and critique of European colonialism make it an engrossing read for all ages.
