Stomping Grounds – Edited by Neil Baker
What do a giant hummingbird, a vast, city-sized, energy-guzzling blob and a sentient planetoid have in common?
They all want to mess up your day, in a big way.
Think you’ve read every giant monster story there is to read? Think again. How about a colossal, rampaging giraffe? How about THIRTY of them? Beavers are pretty cute, eh? Not when they’re snapping your boat in two and gnawing your legs off.
How about a little frog? How about a bloody massive frog, straight from the pits of Hell?
A vast, bloodthirsty bug tears through the streets and a mountainous rhinoceros creature answers the prayers of a desperate man.
These abominations fight tooth and claw for your attention along with giant hounds, kangaroos, wasps and sea creatures. Then there’s ancient Mayan monsters, Lovecraftian terrors from beyond the realms of sanity and insidious beasts of every shape conjured up by human meddling.
Oh, and did we mention the platypus?
So here they are, seventeen stories, seventeen monsters, all here to delight and disgust you as they return to their Stomping Grounds!
Stomping Grounds contains the story The Knot, reprinted from Close Your Eyes: Tales from the Blinkspace.
