There is an incredible lack (in my opinion) of Titanic-related historical fiction which dares to use historical characters. In fact, apart from the dramatic scenes Charles Pellegrino weaves into his technically non-fiction Titanic books, I cannot think of a single Titanic novel that has an all-historical cast.

In April I began writing several short historical fiction stories related to the Titanic that exclusively utilize a cross-section of passengers and crew as the characters. The first one-simply entitled "Thomas Andrews"- was self-published by me on my website last month and can be read at: tonyheld.com - Thomas Andrews: a short story

It includes non-fiction notes at the end where I disucss why I dramatized things the way I did.

Since today marks 100 years and eight months since the Titanic was lost, I thought it was only appropriate to post the link to it here.

IDK-have you ever tried fanfiction.net? I write over there and use mainly the officers. It isn't really historical fiction, but some are really well-written. I've never done one on Andrews though.

I have not ever been to fanfiction.net I had no idea short stories about historical Titanic passengers and crew were posted there.

FYI: I have pulled this short story off of my site and given it a final tweak. It will be back online at The Fresh pen e-Zine next week.

BTW: This short story is --again-- historical fiction, not "fan fiction." Fan fiction pertains to 100% fictional characters, not historical ones.

I would like to invite all who have sincere interest in The Thomas Andrews Titanic/saga to please visit my web site: www.titanicslastmystery.com
I am currently completeing the books and screenplay as regards this incredible TRUE story with hopes to have all manuscripts completed by the end of the year. I have been over a year and a half on this journey of discovery and am heavily researched, documented and ready to take on all once I publish. THIS STORY is NEVER going away and the TRUTH WILL be told after 100+ years of deceptions and falsehoods. Thank you all who have followed this saga and my quest, and withheld judgement.
