What was the difference between Verne’s stories and the ones of Herbert George Wells?

Jules Verne wrote mainly adventures stories, Wells wrote Science Fiction stories. Wells is the true “father of SF”. Verne described his machines based upon certain knowledge of his time, and he matured that idea or that knowledge, and developed it. Verne explains his inventions very well, and with a lot of details – he ‘invariably presents a credible scientific hypothesis and spins a tale of high adventure around an investigation of its possible consequences’*. Wells, on the other hand, invented his machines, which were not based on any scientific knowledge of his time. His machines were constructed with materials that did not exist, and the phenomena that occur in Wells’ stories are not quite explained. They are just Science fiction.

This is a publishing BLOOPER!
Yes, this is an H G Wells story, BUT look at the title on the cover. Marvel got it wrong, and said Jules Verne wrote it! Inside it does say H. G. Wells
