Published on http://www.bookbusinessmag.com.

The centennial of the Titanic’s fatal, maiden voyage has prompted a record number of new books on the disaster, according to Bowker ’s Books In Print®, a leading and reliable source of information on books and publishing metrics. Ninety-eight books – in print and e-versions –have been brought to market in 2012 in anticipation of a surge of interest from the milestone anniversary.  The previous record was 76 titles released in 1998; a year after James Cameron ’s movie epic “Titanic” hit the big screen. Bowker is an affiliated business of ProQuest.

“It’s a timeless story that can be told from so many different angles that it generates virtually endless fodder for authors and publishers,” said Kelly Gallagher , vice-president, Bowker Market Research. “With renewed interest from the centennial, publishers are eager to meet demand and have produced an extraordinary range of titles.”
