Creepy Nautical Coincidences Victorian journalist William Thomas Stead may have predicted the sinking of the Titanic.

Stead wrote both an article and a novel that seem to be based upon the sinking of the Titanic, even though they were both written over twenty years before its maiden voyage. The article was published in the Pall Mall Gazette on March 22, 1886 and was titled "How the Mail Steamer Went Down in Mid-Atlantic, by a Survivor". In this piece, Stead tells of a steamship that sinks after colliding with another ship. Not exactly the story of the Titanic; although, it does say that many died due to a lack of lifeboats. He wrote, "This is exactly what might take place and will take place if liners are sent to sea short of boats".

Stranger still, his 1892 book From the Old World to the New tells of a vessel, the Majestic, that rescues people victims of an iceberg that collided with their ship. The captain of the Majestic was Edward J. Smith, the same name of the captain of the Titanic!
