I recently turned in my final edit for the Beanstalk and Beyond, being volume 1 of the Autobiography of Jack the Giant Killer.
I am posting short excerpts from that work at random intervals. This is one of them
The Ogress (the giant’s wife) is explaining some history to Jack.
“Long ago,” she continued, “While your like was just poking their tiny heads out of caves, this world belonged to the giants. Not the demented cretins you might encounter these days, but true Giants, like my husband. Thousands of them who could all trace their mighty lineage to the Titans themselves.”
