Description
'The Wreck of the Titan' was written fourteen years before the sinking of the Titanic. The events in book are eerily similar to the actual events that would not happen for more than a decade. Titan, the largest ship in the line, was considered to be unsinkable; it was roughly the same size as the Titanic with about the same number of passengers; it was not provided with enough life boats for all of its passages; and half of the passengers died when it sank after hitting an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean. So similar were the incidents described in the book to the sinking of the Titanic that many people credited the author, Morgan Robertson, with clairvoyance. The 'Dr. Who' episode of the same name was based on the events in this book. A story of tragedy, loss, love and redemption.

His tale, however, doesn't end with the passengers' watery demise; rather, it chronicles the detective work instigated by members of Lloyd's of London, embroiling Scotland Yard, when word comes in that the heavily insured ship has sunk to the bottom of the ocean. What ensues is a battle between insurers and attorneys, in London and New York, and a survivor who has rescued another passenger's daughter. Robertson draws upon his own rich and wild experience as a seaman on the Atlantic to weave a narrative interspersed with colloquial dialogue, bringing to life the conflicts between the rich merchants who rely upon shipping and the sailing men relied upon to chart their courses., Robertson, Morgan,1861-1915., Sea stories., Ships, Shipwrecks, Short stories., The Wreck of the Titan was written fourteen years before the sinking of the Titanic.
