I'd advise against saying "All Public Domain works" because it varies by country and some may be legal but run into libel issues, etc.

But I think it would be worth consulting an archivist for a "safe" list of works that may be referenced in The Foundry here and in other Cryptic games.
Since Cryptic is in the US, I'd guess that only US copyright would have to apply, so anything in the main Project Gutenberg archive would be ok.
