..The Wreck of The Titanby Morgan RobertsonFANTASY FICTION / MARITIME DISASTERSin 1898 (14 years prior to the wreck of The Titanic) Robertson wrote of the sinking of a British ocean liner, 800 feet long, with triple expansion engines, two masts and three screws. This fictional ship was the largest most luxurious ever built and was considered unsinkable.

She was racing across the Atlantic in the month of April at high speed when she collided with an iceberg off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland near midnight. Despite her many watertight compartments, the ship foundered very quickly and almost everyone was lost, due in no small part to a completely insufficient number of lifeboats.

The name of Robertson’s fictional ship was the Titan. At first this seemed so incredibly prophetic that people doubted the existence of the earlier edition.Loss of the Titanicby Lawrence Beesley (one of the survivors)The history of the R.M.S. Titanic, of the White Star Line, is one of the most tragically short it is possible to conceive.

The world had waited expectantly for its launching and again for its sailing- had read accounts of its tremendous size and its unexampled completeness and luxury- had felt it a matter of the greatest satisfaction that such a comfortable, and above all such a safe boat had been designed and built--the unsinkable lifeboat---and then in a moment to hear that it had gone to the bottom as if it had been the veriest tramp steamer of a few hundred tons- and with it fifteen hundred passengers, some of them known the world over! The improbability of such a thing ever happening was what staggered humanity.William Thomas Stead (5 July 1849 - 15 April 1912) (one of the lost)was a world renown English journalist.

He was born in Darlington, the son of a Congregational minister. W.T. Stead was a passenger aboard the RMS Titanic when it struck an iceberg and sank in 1912. Stead lost his life along with 1,635 others on that fateful voyage. Decades earlier W.T. Stead had written two articles about ocean liners sinking and passengers perishing due to a shortage of life boats. Stead had also drawn sketches of ocean liners and himself drowning. In 1892, Stead published a story called From the Old World to the New, in which a White Star Line vessel, the Majestic, rescues survivors of another ship that collided with an iceberg.

(the White Star Line, was a prominent British shipping company, most famous for its ill-fated luxury flagship, the RMS Titanic).
