From the dragons of legend to Jack the Giant Killer’s colleague to King Kong
and Godzilla, people have found the idea of giant creatures both scary and
fascinating. Why so many should find accounts of a critter big enough to gulp
down a puny human like an insignificantly small hor d’oeuvre or step on said
human and leave a grease spot might be explained by the psychologists, but
such yarns are undeniable fun. Here’s a book crammed full of large things that
you can’t outrun (because they take big steps) by writers with equally large
reputations, including: David Drake, best-selling author of the Hammer’s
Slammers and RCN series, Robert Bloch, winner of the Hugo award and
the lifetime achievement award of the World Fantasy Convention, Philip
Wylie, co-author of the SF classic, When Worlds Collide and other imaginative
works, Murray Leinster, known as the Dean of science fiction writers, H.P.
Lovecraft, renowned master of horror, and many more! Plus all-new stories
by New York Times best-selling author Larry Correia, and award-winning
authors Sarah A. Hoyt and Wen Spencer. And much more.
