Anyone familiar with Tantalus should recognize the Tantalus touch, in the pirate curse (Pirates of the Caribbean). The House of Atreus begins with the curse that Zeus puts upon Tantalus.

Dune, the Science Fiction series, created by Frank Herbert, links up his House of Atreides with the House of Atreus, I’ll do the same for my novel. I want to use the myth of Tantalus, in some way, but an idea hasn’t tantalized me, yet. Something with a pirate involved remains a possibility.
