Whilst living in exile in London, author André Laurie, pseudonym for politician Paschal Grousset (1845-1909), wrote the original version of the book which was later published as The Southern Star Mystery (1884). André Laurie legally renounced title to the story, rewritten and published by Jules Verne
. Laurie and Verne would collaborate on at least two other novels. It was a logical collaboration. Verne was also very liberal and wrote several novels and one very popular play denouncing imperialism and promoting Africans and Asians. See more
