The world's biggest, most opulent ship sets out across the Atlantic on its maiden voyage. Proclaimed to be unsinkable — and hailed as a testament to modern achievements in manufacturing and transportation — the ocean liner is pushed to its limits in an effort to make the crossing in record time. But a collision with an iceberg and an inadequate supply of lifeboats doom nearly 2,500 souls to a watery grave. This grimly captivating novella was first published in 1898, 14 years before the Titanic disaster. Robertson's fictional telling of what befell the Titan features some extraordinary parallels to the real-life tragedy, including the size of the ship, its horsepower, and its route. The eerily prescient tale will fascinate both history buffs and lovers of adventure stories.
