The Wreck of the Titan
by Morgan Robertson and Sam Leith




Overview -
Once seen as a prediction of the sinking of the" Titanic," this novella was written 14 years before that ill-fated event of 1912--now, on the centenary anniversary of the "Titanic's" sinking, the striking similarities can be examined again in this new edition John Rowland, a disgraced former Royal Navy lieutenant, has taken employment as a lowly deck hand aboard the largest ship ever to have sailed, the "Titan." One night in deep fog, the ship strikes a gigantic iceberg and sinks almost immediately. Written 14 years before the "Titanic's" sinking, this novella has been hailed in equal measures as a prophetic work and the work of pure coincidence. Certainly the similarities are striking: two unsinkable ships steam ahead in treacherous conditions, carrying privileged passengers, with insufficient lifeboats aboard.
