I can't see myself wanting to read about giants who seem to have a frog as a prince anytime soon... but if you do... the book above may be for you! :D

Is it a silent 'H'?

Bizarre, indeed, and a little creepy.

It was retitled "Servants of the Wannek" when all of Vance's books were re-edited and reissued in the "Vance Integral Edition" a few years back. It's not Vance's best work, but it is a fun pulp scifi adventure, with his usual detailed description of exotic cultures both human and alien.

Cos nothing says Sci Fi like a sheep


Although in a Secret Writing Santa thing I did last Christmas (everyone gives a story prompt, then names are pulled out of a hat and you have to write a story for the person) part of my prompt I gave was for a 'surprise sheep'. The sheep in my story-gift were a surprise, and seriously creepy!
My tongue has been in my cheek for so long, I've eroded a new mouth.

I read some John Christopher when I was a teen, but thankfully never stumbled across that one.
