August 17, 2018. Over the years, there has been widespread speculation on how much time separated Titanic‘s official shipboard time, on the night of the disaster, from time in New York, Southampton, London, and other areas ashore. Much of what has been postulated over the years is based on conjecture or just plain bad assumptions. After months of painstaking research, however, our international team of maritime historians has now released our latest peer review article, “Time & Again: Titanic‘s Final Hours”. It presents an astonishing amount of new material on the subject, including unprecedented finds on the Magneta system of shipboard clocks and how they did, and did not, work.

January 26, 2017. Recently, there has been a wave of media coverage on the Titanic, related to a new program entitled Titanic: The New Evidence. The underlying theory is that new evidence shows that the Titanic disaster was caused by a coal bunker fire. Although widely covered, the claim is historically inaccurate. I was privileged to work with a worldwide team of historians to create the new peer review article, Titanic: Fire & Ice (Or What You Will)”, to rebut these claims with the facts.

In 2015, to mark the centennial of the Lusitania disaster, I wrote a series of short articles for the National Museum of Liverpool regarding the history of the Lusitania. I just stumbled across the link while looking for something else and thought that it might interest many of you. -- Kent.

One of my favorite items in my personal collection, perhaps because of its worn appearance. This famous view shows Lusitania in happier times, during her trials in the summer of 1907. #lusitania #lusitania2022

May 7, 2022

107 years ago today, the Lusitania was torpedoed and sank off the southern coast of Ireland in a mere 18 minutes, and with the loss of about 1,200 lives.

Although an arguably 'legal' attack according to the rules of warfare -- and the fact that Lusitania was carrying contraband munitions through a war zone -- the peril to, and death of, hundreds of innocent civilians was truly unprecedented in the history of submarine warfare. The disaster was a shock to the world, signaling that one era had ... See more

Don't miss the first in HFX's new set of documentaries on the Collins Line!

May 6, 2022

Coming soon from HFX Studios! This is going to be fantastic.

I have been able to help out in a very small way toward the finished videos, and it is a real treat to be even a tiny part of such an unprecedented retelling of the Collins Line story.

Yes, you can still get one of the LAST signed & numbered copies of 'Recreating Titanic and Her Sisters: A Visual History' that are left unpaid for. Act fast! The last copies will be assigned based on who pays the final invoices first!

May 1, 2022

Incredibly, all 500 signed & numbered copies of 'Recreating Titanic' have now been reserved. However, we will be fulfilling shipments based on final payment of invoices, rather than reservation order, as not all reservations are fully paid.

This is, quite literally, the last call on all signed & numbered copies of our new book. To place a deposit on one of these, follow the link below and then follow the instructions on that page. We will send the invoice for the balance due as quickly as we ... See more

Last night was an absolutely fantastic livestream. Tad, Bill, and I were deeply honored to be on the same panel as Tom and Levi, who were so instrumental in creating this animation (which is featured so prominently in 'Recreating Titanic') with us. And it was a genuine honor to have Ken Marschall join us for the entire event and give his input and insights as we watched the animation, discussed specific events as they took place, and answered questions after the real-time sinking had ...

Although our real-time sinking animation and livestream starts at 10:00pm, we also would like to invite everyone here to join us at 7:00pm this evening via this link. (See link page to register and join.) Tad, Bill, and I will be joining a larger team of panelists to speak and take questions for about an hour via Crowdcast. We hope to see you there ... and then at 10:00pm for the main event!

As we get ready for the 110th anniversary livestream tomorrow evening, here are some fabulous updates and news from Tom Lynskey at HFX, with whom we work with behind the scenes very closely. Tom and Emma have been great to work with, but the most important and exciting announcement for them both is just at the end! 🙂
