I have just finished reading Philip Jose Farmers, The Other Log of Phileas Fogg. The novel gives us another look at Phileas Fogg. The Other Log of Phileas Fogg recounts Phileas Fogg’s journey around the world except with a catch.
Two alien cultures are warring for the control of the earth. Fogg is of the Eridanean race and in addition to trying to keep his bet with his fellows at the Reform club he and his servant Passpartout must battle the Capelleans for the control of earth. Captain Nemo, a Capellean is a sworn enemy of Foggs and Fogg must outwit Nemo.
