Introduction books/interesting thesis ideas on string theory

Hi string group,

I'm a new member. In a few months I'll have completed my final exams
and can finally start to write my diploma thesis (german diploma) in
theoretical physics and mathematics.

Naturally I'm a novice in the subject, having only very superficial
basic knowledge from a supersymmetry/supergravity/superstring lecture.
So I'm currently collecting information about books, interesting
articles and so on. Since I don't have a specific thesis frame or topic
to deal with, I search for general readings or interesting suggestions
that could be dealt with. Of course I'm aware of the obvious readings
(Polchinski, Green/Schwarz/Witten) that are currently scattered around
my desk.

Current ideas for a thesis topic are something (very vague and
preliminary) "anomalies in multi-dimensional brane-extensions in string
theory" or something like that.

So what I'm asking for are some inspiring hints, that could be deals
with in detail. Please note that the subjects should contain sufficient
mathematical aspects, because it should be a thesis for both departments
(that's ok by the regulations if the thesis has the sufficient
length...).

Maybe this question is a bit preliminary because my actual lack of
deeper knowledge in the subject, but on the other hand I prefer reading
books and knowing whats goint to appear between the lines.

Thanks so far, Benjamin.
