About the Author:

Morgan Robertson was an American writer best known for his novel Futility, or The Wreck of the Titan, a prescient novel published in 1898 about the catastrophic sinking of an unsinkable ocean liner, eerily similar to the sinking of the Titanic fourteen years later. Robertson also penned The Submarine Destroyer, Three Laws and the Golden Rule, and the short story Beyond the Spectrum, which described a future war between the United States and the Empire of Japan. Morgan Robertson died in 1915.
