From the Earth to the Moon (French: De la Terre à la Lune) 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. Note: From the Earth to the Moon ends in a bit of a cliffhanger. The story continues with Round the Moon, which is in the catalog at the link below. – Laurie Anne Walden
