    Edgar Allen Poe. Perhaps best known for the poem "The Raven" and short stories like "The Tell-Tale Heart," Poe is often seen as a writer of horror, and he can be considered the father of the modern horror story. With his three stories featuring C. Auguste Dupin ("Murders in the Rue Mourge," ""The Mystery of Marie Roget," and "The Purloined Letter"), he can be considered the father of the modern mystery/detective story. Aurthor Conan Doyle called Poe "a root from which a whole literature has developed." His only novel "Narrative of A. Gordon Pym" influenced early science fiction authors like Jules Vern and H.G. Wells. His intrest in the field of cryptography, displayed in "The Gold-Bug", lead him to write essays on the topic, one of which was used by the British during WWI. He even touched on physics in his work "Eureka" which anticipated future theories like the big bang and blackholes by at least eighty years.

    Jules Gabriel Verne ( / dʒ uː l z / [1] / v ɜːr n / ; [1] [2] French: [ʒyl vɛʁn] ; 8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French novelist , poet , and playwright best known for his adventure novels and his profound influence on the literary genre of science fiction.

    Verne was born to bourgeois parents in the seaport of Nantes , where he was trained to follow in his father's footsteps as a lawyer, but quit the profession early in life to write for magazines and the stage. His collaboration with the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel led to the creation of the Voyages extraordinaires , a widely popular series of scrupulously researched adventure novels including Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873).
