27 Stories that feature giants. Last Updated: Popular: 'Legend of the Lost', 'The Black Pool', 'Gods and Mages', 'The Humanarium'. A short summary of O.E. Rölvaag's Giants in the Earth This free synopsis covers all the crucial plot points of Giants in the Earth.

The Book of Giants retells part of this story and elaborates on the exploits of the giants, especially the two children of Shemihaza, Ohya and Hahya.

The Book of Giants, like the Book of Enoch, concerns itself with the Nephilim, which are the offspring of fallen angels, who are called the Watchers. Two main versions of the text exist.

The Dead Sea version is written in Aramaic. Another version has been found written in middle Persian, adapted from the Aramaic to fit into the Manichean /5().

This book outlines the handful of individuals who manage the most powerful think tanks, investment firms and corporate boards who make society’s decisions at the expense of the planet.

Early works of science fiction used Jupiter itself as a location for stories, but modern science has shown that the planet has no solid surface one could land on and that its atmosphere, temperature, high gravity and intense radiation is hostile to human life. The Book of Giants has similar content to another pseudepigraphal Jewish book called 1 Enoch, which probably predates it.

Many have associated the Nephilim with giants. Giant traits may not have been limited to Nephilim alone: Goliath, a giant, was not considered Nephilim.
