From Publishers' Weekly:

Jordan Stump offers a new translation of The Mysterious Island, Jules Verne's late 19th-century classic about five men and a dog who are stranded on a deserted island for several years. Caleb Carr provides an engaging introduction to this rich combination of mystery, science fiction and commentary on the human condition.(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Wesleyan launches its "Early Classics of Science Fiction" line in style with this first English translation of Verne's 1904 novel Invasion of the Sea. The series will feature scholarly editions of popular sf works, with illustrations, bibliographies, textual notes, etc. Though long available in English, The Mysterious Island here receives a new and much more spry and exciting translation to replace the drab version that has been boring readers for years. This also features illustrations and an introduction by Caleb Carr. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
