Author Morgan Robertson wrote a novella named 'Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan' in 1898. It is a collection of short stories related to sailors and ocean-voyages. One of the short stories of the book sounds very similar to the real life story of Titanic. Morgan Robertson named the fictional giant ship in his book "Titan," and described it as "Unsinkable." Just like how the real RMS Titanic sunk in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, Titan submerged in the same ocean after it hit an iceberg. As per the book, approximately 2500 passengers on board died due to the shortage of lifeboats.
