    There is a fantasy novel features explorers flying to the moon, a first encounter with plant-based aliens, interplanetary war between imperialistic celestial kingdoms, and the discovery of a continent across the ocean.
    Oh, and it was written in the 100s. Yes, the 100s AD.
    True History, or A True Story, is a satire of old myths passed off as facts. Inadvertently, it may have also created the science fiction genre nearly two millennia before its proper start in the 1800s.

    And here's the story itself.
