The Wreck of the Titanic Foretold?

Gardner, Martin (Ed.)

 Skeptic Martin Gardner has reprinted Morgan Robertson's novel, The Wreck of the Titan, which Ian Stevenson and others have cited as an example of precognition of the sinking of the Titanic. He also reprints other selections (part of a novel, a short story, several poems) that also seemed to foretell the fate of the Titanic. In his general introduction, he argues that chance can account for any coincidence, no matter how improbable, and criticizes Stevenson's two surveys of cases foretelling the wreck of the Titanic. In individual introductions to all the pieces anthologized, he argues further that they could be explained by normal means and that precognition was not involved.
