Jules Verne - Doctor Ox’s Experiment and Other Short Stories

Doctor Ox's Experiment and Other Short Stories by Jules Verne

Jules Verne pioneered the genre of science-fiction. He is best known for his novels "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (1864), "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" (1870), and "Around the World in Eighty Days" (1873).

Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. He is the third most translated author of all time. His prominent novels have been made into films. Verne, along with H. G. Wells, is often referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction". And this is a nice collection with ten of his short stories.

Fornnordiska sagor - Andra samlingen

Fornnordiska Sagor – Andra samlingen 

Ofta används begreppet fornnordiska sagor om hela vår nordiska sagoskatt men man skiljer egentligen på Kungasagor (som avhandlar de norska kungarna, som tex Snorres Heimskringla), Islänningasagor (som är isländska släktkrönikor) och Fornnordiska sagor. De sistnämnda kallas allt oftare för Fornaldrasagor just för att de inte ska blandas ihop med de övriga. 

Hittills har ingen komplett samling fornaldrasagor givits ut på svenska, men denna bok är volym två i vår serie och ambitionen är att samlingen ska bli komplett i och med den tredje volymen. 

Dels finns här äldre översättningar och dels nya översättningar av sagor som tidigare inte funnits på svenska. Några sagor räknas ibland både som tex fornaldrasaga och kungasaga, och tas därför med just för att vi ska få ihop en så komplett samling som möjligt.
