The Steam House The Steam House is an Jules Verne novel recounting the travels of a group of British colonists in the Raj in a wheeled house pulled by a steam-powered mechanical elephant. Verne uses the mechanical house as a plot device to have the reader travel in nineteenth-century India ; the descriptions are interspersed with social commentary.
The book takes place in the aftermath of the Indian Rebellion of against British rule, with the passions and traumas aroused still much alive among Indians and British alike. An alternate title by which the book was known - "The End of Nana Sahib " - refers to the appearance in the book of the historical figure—Rebel leader Nana Sahib—who disappeared after the crushing of the rebellion, his ultimate fate unknown. Verne offers a fictional explanation to his disappearance. In summer , in Aurangabad , British colonial government announces bounty on the head of Nana Sahib, supposed to be hiding in that presidency.

Nana Sahib escapes from Aurangabad same night and taking his brother Bala Rao and followers, hidden in Ajanta and Ellora caves retreats to Vindhiyanchal mountains to hide from colonial forces. Nana Sahib, along with his brother and followers hides in various small fortresses called Pals, inside Pal of Tandil , his brother Bala Rao, similar to Nana sahib in physical appearance, inquires about the inhabitants of fortress and learns from locals that none except local outlaws, insurgents and a mad woman knows about the place.
The mad woman is known as Rowing Flame as she carries a burning torch and roams the wilderness in valley of Narmada ; the locals feed and cloth her. From this hiding place, Nana Sahib launches an underground movement and secretly visit local chieftains for persuading them for a rising. Meanwhile, in Calcutta , a group of Europeans is planning for a voyage through India; the group consist of Banks, a railroad engineer, the French adventurer and narrator for most part of the story, Captain Hood.

Around the Moon Around the Moon , Jules Verne's sequel to From the Earth to the Moon , is a science fiction novel which continues the trip to the Moon, only described in the previous novel. Having been fired out of the giant Columbiad space gun, the Baltimore Gun Club's bullet-shaped projectile, along with its three passengers, Barbicane and Michael Ardan , begins the five-day trip to the Moon.
A few minutes into the journey, a small, bright asteroid passes within a few hundred yards of them, but does not collide with the projectile; the asteroid had become a second moon. The three travelers undergo a series of adventures and misadventures during the rest of the journey, including disposing of the body of a dog out a window, suffering intoxication by gases, making calculations leading them to believe that they are to fall back to Earth. During the latter part of the voyage, it becomes apparent that the gravitational force of their earlier encounter with the asteroid has caused the projectile to deviate from its course.
The projectile enters lunar orbit, rather than landing on the Moon as planned. Barbicane and Nicholl begin geographical observations with opera glasses; the projectile dips over the northern hemisphere of the Moon, into the darkness of its shadow. It is plunged before emerging into the light and heat again, they begin to approach the Moon's southern hemisphere.
From the safety of their projectile, they gain spectacular views of Tycho, one of the greatest of all craters on the Moon ; the three men discuss the possibility of life on the Moon, conclude that it is barren. The projectile begins to move away from the Moon, towards the'dead point'. Michel Ardan hits upon the idea of using the rockets fixed to the bottom of the projectile to propel the projectile towards the Moon and cause it to fall onto it, thereby achieving their mission.

When the projectile reaches the point of neutral attraction, the rockets are fired, but it is too late. The projectile begins a fall onto the Earth from a distance of , miles, it is to strike the Earth at a speed of , miles per hour, the same speed at which it left the mouth of the Columbiad.
All hope seems lost for Barbicane and Ardan. Four days the crew of a US Navy vessel, spots a bright meteor fall from the sky into the sea; this turns out to be the returning projectile, the three men inside are found to be alive and are rescued.

Project Gutenberg's All Around the Moon — This is the translation of Edward Roth first published in by King and Baird, Philadelphia ; this translation has been vilified by Verne scholars for the large amount of additional non-Verne material included.
