  1. Really enjoyed this post! It’s fascinating how often giants crop up in fairy tales and myths… And sad that they’re frequently considered dangerous or even monstrous. Kind of makes me want to have a race of giants in one of my books who are actually a peaceful people, rather than terrifying warriors.

      Thanks, Heather! Your comment about having them be a peaceful people despite being so intimidating reminds me of the Hork-Bajir in the Animorphs series. I loved those books growing up!

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies
    for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Let me know what you think!
