THE WRECK OF THE TITAN

Did a fiction author predict the sinking of the Titanic fourteen years before it happened?

Morgan Robertson wrote a gripping fictional Novel in 1898. It was the story of a luxury Liner christened the Titan. It was the largest ship of its day. It carried over 2,200 passengers. The captain was well aware that there were not enough life boats on board. Nonetheless, he was not concerned. After all, the ship was unsinkable.
On its maiden voyage it left England destined for the United States. During the journey it collided with an iceberg and sank.
Does this sound familiar?
Fourteen years later, the Titanic set sail for the United States and struck an iceberg.
Did Morgan Robertson predict the sinking of the Titanic fourteen years before it happened? Or was it a coincidence?
