It includes features on ancient shamans and soothsayers, Egyptian dream analysis, Greek oracles and Roman auguries, the ancient roots of astrology, messianic visionaries, medieval seers, African systems of divination, Aztec prophecies of cataclysms, the mysteries of Pachacamac, Nostradamus and his "Centuries" and the futurism of H. G. Wells.
