Future Articles and Books


I just want to give you a preview of some future topics.

First for all of those interested in Titanic, “Titanic, The Journey Begins” will be my last Titanic book. However, I will always be looking for new Titanic information. I will always have a Titanic tab where I will be writing Titanic articles and posting new Titanic information. So even after my last Titanic book is out, you will still be able to find new Titanic information and articles here.

After the Titanic Centennial, I will be writing an article for another web site on the S.S. Bannockburn. I will post a link to that article here on my page. The S.S. Bannockburn is known as the Flying Dutchman of the Great Lakes. The S.S. Bannockburn disappeared in a storm on Lake Superior in 1902. However, for more than 100 years the ship has supposedly been sighted on Lake Superior. The Bannockburn had a unique profile which made the ship easy to identify, this is why all of the sightings after the ship sank are interesting to me.

After the Bannockburn article, I will start research for a new book on the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald. I have never been satisfied with the investigation into the loss of the Edmund Fitzgerald, and want to see what I can find out. The investigation into the loss of the ship blamed the crew for its loss and answered very few questions. I have always felt it was too convenient to blame men who could not defend themselves. We owe it to those men to get to the bottom of that ship’s loss.

There are a few other projects I have in my “to-do” list, but I’ll tell you about those later. Also if there is something YOU would like me to investigate, drop me a line. Our e-mail addresses are on our contacts page.

Thank You & have a great day !

  1. Can’t wait for the article on the Edmund Fitzgerald! I’m aware of it mostly from the song and one documentary, but I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say about it.

  2. I can’t wait to read the article on the Bannockburn. Sounds like an interesting case.

    • This one has been hard to research. Everyone (that knows about this ship) seems to know someone,that knows someone, who knows someone that saw the Bannockburn after it sank. However, finding material I can trace back to a source has proven hard. Just the kind of research project I like hehehe.
