The Begums Fortune (French: Les Cinq cents millions de la B gum), also published as The Begums Millions, is an 1879 novel by Jules Verne, with some elements which could be described as utopian and others which seem clearly dystopian. It is remarkable as the first published book in which Verne was cautionary and to some degree pessimistic about the development of science and technology. (Vernes very first book, Paris in the Twentieth Century, was very pessimistic in this respect - but for that reason it was rejected by the publishers and was only discovered and published many decades after Vernes death.)
