I sounds wonderful, except that I would take a somewhat different selection of books. A bit of science, a bit of politics, and some more familiar fiction authors. I would go for weird poetry if I could tell what it's about.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
