2003 saw a little over 20 titles published on the disaster in a wide range of topics. This article covers the year in books, with brief descriptions about the content of each. Plus there is a quick preview of some new titles to look forward to in the coming year.

Just got done reading it. I saw a few titles there that I haven't heard of. Good choice on Book of the Year, BTW. I had a feeling Ghosts of the Abyss would take this easily. If any of Mark Chirnside's contributions and research are any indication, then "The Olympic Class Ships: Olympic, Titanic, Britannic" is my bet on the most likly to take the 2004 honours.

I was given a book for Christmas that I'd never heard of:

"The Loss Of The Titanic 1912: Uncovered Editions" from TSO Publishing, an amalgamation of archived documents told in 'popular form' from The Stationery Office that have never previously been released, priced £6.99.

It was apparently only published last month.

Cheers,

Boz

Michael, if your list can be extended to include publications in digital form, then Craig Stringer's CD-ROM Titanic People hits the jackpot for me.

thanks for that, Boz. the Uncovered Editions book you are talking about has actually been in print since 1999. or, at least my copy was printed in that year. great little book!

Bob, I am still struggling with the decision whether to expand beyond books into other media or not. besides the cd-rom you mentioned there have been several titles released on audiotape the past few years.

all the best, Michael (TheManInBlack) T

And to make it even more confusing, Michael: What about 'books' on the web? Such as the Titanic Inquiries? Available on CD, book form, OR on the web?

Michael, you could perhaps draw the line to exclude video, audio and multimedia presentations but to include works which are in effect books (ie a sequence of pages containing text and static graphics) in all respects other than that the pages are presented onscreen rather than on paper. Craig's monumental Titanic People is sold in the form of pdf files which can in fact be printed and bound by anybody who feels so inclined! I personally find it more useful in digital form as the text is infinitely 'searchable'.

Try clicking on http://www.titanicbooksite.com/ for the homepage.

http://www.titanicbooksite.com/book_of_the_year_award.html is the URL for the Book Of The Year listing. I'm wondering when TMiB is going to post the 2004 award.

Hi Ed,
I completely renovated the site in February 2004 to the format it is in now. That reformatting required some page names to be changed, and all the author pages to require new links. Any link to a page on my site posted before February 2004 (aside from the home page link) is probably not going to work any longer.

You asked about the article on the books published in 2003. Here is the link for that article:

http://www.titanicbooksite.com/article_books2003.html

The link that Mike S kindly provided is to the Book of the Year award page. Mike, the 2004 book of the year will be awarded in January, 2005.

all the best, Michael (TheManInBlack) T
