The Wreck of the Titan: Or, Futility
By Morgan Robertson
In 1898, a novel called The Wreck of the Titan: Or, Futility was released by author Morgan Robertson. This book is all about a ship called the Titan that hit an iceberg and sank.
Even though it was written 14 years before the sinking of the RMS Titanic, the details in this book share a lot of similarities with the sinking. Heres a list of just some of those similarities:
· Both ships sank in April
· There were not enough lifeboats for everybody on board
· Both ships had triple screw propeller
· Both were said to be unsinkable
