This book is Futility by Morgan Robertson . Published in 1898 it tells the fictional story of an ocean liner which , on it’s maiden voyage hits an iceberg in the Atlantic one April night and sinks, causing massive loss of life due to the lack of lifeboats onboard … this story sounds familiar of course because 14 years after its publication the story told by Robertson in Futility came true when the white star line ocean liner Titanic hit an iceberg in the Atlantic one April night and sank, causing massive loss of life due to the lack of lifeboats onboard. Perhaps the most remarkable thing however is that Robertson named his ship “Titan”

Well , now you know …
