Other Titanic Bibliographic Sites.

Fiona Nitschke's excellent site has reviews of around 200 books. Although she lists some of her favorite nonfiction books, her fascination is with Titanic fiction. Her site is the definitive one for books about fiction, poetry and plays, as well as childrens' books. As an added bonus, this is one of the most attractively constructed Titanic sites on the web. Not to be missed.

Jim Sadur's Titanic Website.
This is an excellent overall site about the Titanic story, with an emphasis on facts and figures. The book list is somewhat out of date, but still quite comprehensive. Of special note is what appears to be a comprehensive list of films on the subject.

The Titanic Reading Room.
Judy Lichtman's site covers a wide range of titles, and with an emphasis on editions that are still in print. Many of these books can be ordered directly through her site, as well.

Scott's Titanic Web Site.
Scott McIntyre is a private collector who has managed to acquire some of the hardest to find Titanic books (the lucky devil). His site has over 30 illustrations of books and ephemera in his collection.

Titanic Book Review.
Andrew Baines' site is an attempt to rate the quality of Titanic books. There is not a lot of content on-line yet. He lists what are, in his opinion, the ten best Titanic books, and welcomes feedback on his choices whether you agree with him or not!

Book Search Engine Sites.

These are the sites that specialize in searching multiple new and used internet book sites. The two big players right now are and They have the strength of listing copies of books from many sites all on one page. By sorting the results by price, you can easily find the best books and the very cheapest prices. Most of the major book sites are searched by both AddAll & Bookfinder, but each also searches several sites the other does not include. To really cover the territory, it is best to run your search on both sites when you can. Book Search Engines are your friends. Use them wisely. Used Books
AddAll has become my favorite search engine. It has two separate engines for searching, one for used books and one for books in-print. AddAll's used search engine is very powerful, with extensive search refinement options, plus it returns searches very quickly. There is also a very useful option to pick and choose which sites you want to search. It searches some sites that does not. The link will take you directly to their search page. New Books
AddAll has a separate page for new book searches. This link will take you directly to their In-Print book search page, which searches 35 on-line bookstores, like, Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc.
Bookfinder is another excellent multi-site search engine. Unlike AddAll, Bookfinder searches new and used sites simultaneously. For a while the site seemed to have a problem with searches going very slowly, but these issues seem to have been resolved. I would still like to see an option of picking and choosing which sites to search, but so far that is not an option on Bookfinder. The site still has excellent search parameters to help you refine your search request, and it still includes sites that AddAll does not. The link will take you directly to the site's search page.
This is a new multi-site search engine. It searches both new and out-of-print book sites simultaneously. It automatically sorts all the sites by price and even includes shipping costs, so you can easily find the best price possible. If it's your thing, the site also finds movies, music and games as well. The link will take you to the site's search page.

Individual Out of Print Book Sites, North America. (Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America).
The ABAA is the most prestigious professional association of out-of-print booksellers in the U.S. This link will take you directly to their book search page.
I list this most famous of on-line auction sites with more than a few reservations. This is definitely a 'buyer beware' site. Books on eBay are often described incorrectly and/or incompletely. Even worse, most of the time the condition of books is consistently overrated. This is not from anyone's intent to defraud 99% of the time, but rather from a lack of experience in describing books on the seller's part. Still, many scarce books show up on eBay that just don't show up anywhere else. This link will take you right to eBay's search page.

Individual Out of Print Book Sites Around the World.

(Australia & New Zealand). BiblioOz. (Biblioquest International).
A search engine for the Australian market. This link will take you directly to their advanced search page. The text is in Australian (just kidding).

(Britain & Europe). ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers).
The European counterpart to the ABAA, listed above. ILAB booksellers maintain the highest professional and ethical standards, just like their ABAA cousins. This link will take you directly to the site's home page.

Chapitre is actually a search engine for all French language countries, not just France. It deals in both new and used books. This link will take you to their home page. The text is in French (go figure!).

Akaikutsu is a search engine for the Japanese market. This link will take you to their home page. You are on your own after that!

Individual New Book Sites.

Titanic Historical Society.
The first, and oldest, society dedicated to preserving the story of the Titanic. THS has a catalog of books for sale including some titles they publish exclusively. Many books with smaller print runs can be found here as well. This link will take you directly to their home page, then click on the THS Oceanliner Store tab.
Unless you have been living in a cave for the past 10 years, you know about this popular on-line bookstore. Still one of the best sites to hunt for new books. This link will take you right to their book search page.

Barnes &
Not as well known as Amazon's site, Barnes & Noble actually has a much larger in-stock inventory. Well worth a check. This link will take you directly to their book search page. UK.
Many books on the subject are published in Great Britain. Many of these also get published in the U.S., but some do not. UK is definitely worth searching separately. This link will take you right to their book search page.

WH Smith On-Line.
This British book site stocks some titles on the Titanic that UK doesn't seem to carry. This link will take you directly to their advanced search page.

British National Archives. (Formerly the Public Record Office).
The publishing branch for British government publications. This link will take you directly to their home page.

Bargain Book Sites.

These are sites that specialize in closeouts and remainders, usually at bargain basement prices. Very often books ordered from these sites will have remainder marks on the edges of the pages. These sites also tend to have very limited search parameters. Actual selection in any one topic tends to be rather spotty, but sometimes you can hit on some real winners as well.
This site also has quite basic search options; allowing you to search by title, author, isbn or publisher. The link will take you to their home page.
This link will take you to their 'power' search page, which is actually pretty good for a bargain book site.

Titanic Community Sites.

Encyclopedia Titanica.
One of the best all around sites with an emphasis on the biographies of Titanic's passengers and crew. It also has a dynamic message board with ongoing discussions on just about every aspect of Titanic's story. Quite a number of authors and serious on-line researchers post here on a regular basis.

Titanic Titanic!
Another wonderful site, packed with useful information, that also has a vibrant message board with ongoing discussions. This site is generally more fan based overall than Encyclopedia Titanica, on the other hand, it seems to encourage a more closely knit, community spirited atmosphere amongst its members.

Another major society based in the U.S. TIS was founded in 1989. They have a spectacular website, well worth checking out. They publish a quarterly journal called Voyage.
