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. Listen to the author discuss the book here on the Baen Free Radio Hour.
