Walter Gorn Old (1864-1929, England) was a 19th-century astrologer, who used the nom-de-plume “Sepharial”, after an angel in the apocryphal Book of Enoch. Sepharial was a well-known and respected astrologer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and wrote numerous books, some of which are still highly regarded in some circles today.
Futility is a novella written and published first during 1898. It was revised as The Wreck of the Titan in 1912. It features a fictional British ocean liner named Titan that sinks in the North Atlantic Ocean after striking an iceberg. The Titan and its sinking are famous for similarities to the passenger ship RMS Titanic and its sinking 14 years later.
