Somethings alive on the Titanic


I've just heard of this one - anyone know anything about it? Anyone read it?

Re: Somethings alive on the Titanic


Hi Lee,

These RMSTI types go down to loot the TITANIC and they see people like Murdoch, the [sign in to see URL] bunch of passengers and then some really bad stuff starts happening....

Sorry I need to be a bit more explicit in my posts - this is a book, I think. Anyone hear of it before?

Re: Somethings alive on the Titanic


Yes, I have a copy and have read it--twice over the years. It's a pretty good adventure story, but is not very 'Titanic' if you know what I mean. It could easily have been written about any cool shipwreck I think.
But Lights is right in what she said, it is like that. A researcher comes up with evidence of treasure aboard and a group goes after it--this was before she was officially discovered. The expedition comes to a sticky end (I'm not giving anything away as this is made clear early on). Sooo, this time there is no BSing [sign in to see URL] US Navy gets involved. It is much along the film "Aliens II" where the first encounter doesn't work out so the 'big guns' are brought in.... But....
But in many ways it is like the 'Raise the T' movie. Good action fun, but very frustrating for us Titanic geeks in that there isn't nearly enough real Titanic lore to sink our teeth in. You haven't missed much by not having heard of it.
The only thing I really found cool is the modern Navy expedition had some newly developed suit type things so they can actually go down inside--a real fantasy trip!...but alas, not well enough gone into to wet the whistle.

Hmmm, ok I think that's enough of a review for me to pass on it. Thanks, Sig.
