Off on a Comet-- or Hector Servadac is Verne's departure from scientific-based, in favor of a more fairy tale-like fantasy, requiring the reader's suspended belief after Earth and a comet's collision. Originally published in 1877, it was retrieved from Amazing Stories, April and May, 1926. "Scarcely a yard of ground was left unexplored. The horses clearing every obstacle, as if they were like Pegasus, furnished with wings."
