This novel explores "the social consequences of the reckless release of a new discovery: the nutrient Herakleophorbia, which makes all creatures grow to giant size. In the early part of the novel there are many melodramatic encounters between men and giant vermin, but the real theme of the story is the metaphorical and actual division of mankind into two species: 'little people' and giants.
