Mount Temple and Titanic: Murmurs and Misadventure
, by Senan Molony.
The Mount Temple was one of the ships on the Atlantic the night the Titanic sank. It's part in the events have always been shadowed in quiet controversy. It certainly was not the infamous mystery ship as it was on the wrong side of the ice field. But there are serious questions about whether Mount Temple's Captain Moore could have played a larger role in the rescue. Molony once again puts his professional talents as a journalistic reporter to the case by taking a closer look at what may or may not have really happened on Mount Temple that night.

This is an oversized, slender softcover booklet with 44 pages. It includes photos, charts and photocopies of original 1912 news reports. As with his other self-published books, this one is available on both sides of the Atlantic.

Ein Schiff unter Anklage, the German edition of A Ship Accused, by Senan Molony.
Foreign langage titles are really beyond the scope of this site for the most part, but I was so impressed with this book, as well as the production values of the publisher's Murdoch biography, that I felt an exception was definitely in order. As mentioned a while back on the Upcoming Book News page, Senan's excellent defense of Captain Lord and the Californian, A Ship Accused, was being translated into German. That German language edition has just been published. What's more, it is in hardback, a treat us English speaking bookoholics were denied! Susanne Störmer's publishing house has released the book through her website, Stormbreakers. Here are the details for Ein Schiff unter Anklage on Susanne's Stormbreaker website.

Ghosts of the Abyss. A Journey Into the Heart of the Titanic
, by Don Lynch, Ken Marschall & James Cameron.
The most eagerly awaited Titanic book in a decade is finally here. James Cameron went back to the wreck of the Titanic to shoot a 40 minute IMAX movie, going deeper into the wreck than anyone else has ever gone before. The IMAX movie will be in theaters shortly, and this book is the story of that expedition and film. It is a hardcover book with 144 pages. It is full of breathtaking color images of the Titanic as she looks today. There are also many photos and recreations of the ship as she looked during her maiden voyage.

The availability of the book is still a bit spotty. Most of the major on-line bookstores now show it as in stock, but many of the major brick & mortar bookstores do not have it on their shelves yet, although others do. In any event, even if a store near you doesn't have it today, be assured they will have it in-stock very shortly.

Titanic: Ghosts of the Abyss, by Mireille Majoor & Ken Marschall.
There is also a children's version of the above title. This one also tells the story of the James Cameron IMAX expedition, but its focus is for younger readers. It is also in hardcover, but much shorter, only 48 pages. But it comes with 3-D glasses and more than 35 3-D images that children, and yes adults too, are going to love. This one is available on all the major on-line bookstores, and will be available shortly at your local bookstore, and might even be in-stock now depending on the store and your location in the country.

Titanic, Shipwrecks and Sunken Treasure (Secret Worlds)
, by John Malam.
This is a children's book for the 9 to 12 age bracket. It is a volume in the popular DK Secret Worlds series. This work looks at the history of underwater exploration, and salvage dives for both archaeology and treasure. There is one full chapter on the Titanic, plus the disaster is mentioned in passing in several other chapters as well.

It is a small book with 96 pages, and is available in both hardcover and softcover versions. It is color illustrated on most pages, often with the text superimposed over the art. It has an attractive, if inaccurate, color painting of the bow section of Titanic on the front cover. The book should be available at most major bookstores and on-line book sites as well, although none of the on-line sites list Malam as the author. If you want to search for it yourself, your best bet is to look for "Titanic Secret Worlds" in the title field. The hardcover is selling for around $11, the softback for around $6. Here is the link to the paperback version of Titanic Secret Worlds on Amazon.com's website.

Titanic Passages. Editor’s Selection of 100 Pages from the White Star Journal
, by Senan Molony.
Yep, the prolific Mr. Molony has published yet another book. The man's output is just incredible, though he swears this is going to be his last book for quite some time to come. I'm not convinced, but we shall see. This book contains a series of articles he has written over the last few years. These articles first appeared in the Irish Titanic Historical Society’s quarterly magazine, the White Star Journal, which Molony has edited for some years now. There are about 65 articles all together on a whole spectrum of topics as diverse as a piece about Captain Rostron’s celebrated sighting of a sea serpent to the discovery of a photograph believed to be the very last one ever taken of Titanic.

This book has the same format and size as his Garbled Titantic. It is 104 pages long, and profusely illustrated with photographs thru-out. It has a wraps binding with a clear acetate front cover. As with his other self-published books, this one is available on both sides of the Atlantic.

If you are here in the U.S. it is available for sale right here at Titanic Book Site.com on the Book Store page. The price is $25.00 + $5.00 for media mail shipping. If you would like to order one, please give the store a call at 1-800-781-6060 within the U.S., or 813-684-1133 from anywhere else. If you are out of the country (or simply don't want to use the phone), you can also email the store at bookcrnr@worldnet.att.net. For complete details, please see the Book Store page.

If you are in Great Britain/Europe, the book can be ordered directly from the author. He can be reached at: sennbrig@indigo.ie.
