    In a mere 128 pages, Lester Del Rey tells a better story than most modern writers can in 500 Day of the Giants feels astonishingly slim next to the mammoth tomes which are de rigueur these days, but that slimness just points up the fact that most of those gargantuan books are simply padded.The book is very strongly reminiscent of the Compleat Enchanter series by L Sprague de Camp and Fletcher Pratt Both feature modern twentieth century men who are unexpectedly faced with the world of Norse my In a mere 128 pages, Lester Del Rey tells a better story than most modern writers can in 500 Day of the Giants feels astonishingly slim next to the mammoth tomes which are de rigueur these days, but that slimness just...

    I ve really been enjoying Lester Del Rey s fiction lately He s a great writer, with great characters and very original ideas Day of the Giants is a short novel, and is borderline fantasy science fiction in that the fantasy elements are explained with intentionally vague pseudo science, or at least the intimation that there is some sort of scientific explanation that the narrator simply doesn t understand, although one might conclude the narrator s rationalism simply deludes him into this In I ve really been enjoying Lester Del Rey s fiction lately He s a great writer, with great characters and very original ideas Day of the Giants is a short novel, and is borderline fantasy science fiction in that the fantasy elements are explained with intentionally vague pseudo science, or at least the intimation that there is some sort of scientific explanation that th...

    I found this book years ago in a used book store and have enjoyed it many times It is a short book but a good one, a SciFi retelling of Ragnarok, the last battle between Odin and Thor, and their enemies, the Giants By the time it wraps up I wish it was ten times longer It is a classic anachronistic adventure story where our hero, a modern man, gets caught up in what he thought were myths and legends but turn out to be all too real This book is a real page turner and I recommend it to all lov I found this book years ago in a used book store and have enjoyed it many times It is a short book but a good one, a SciFi retelling of Ragnarok, the last battle between Odin and Thor, and their enemies, the Giants By the time it wraps up I wish it was ten times longer It is a classic anachronistic adventure story where our hero, a modern man, gets caught up in what he thought were myths and legends but turn out to be all too real This book is a real page turner and I ...

    I read this book in my childhood All this talk of Ragnarok reminded me of it and I had to go find it Prior to this book I knew nothing of the Viking mythos This one is not heavy on it, but treats the world of the Norse Gods as a form of alternate universe that impacts our own Earth.As...

    The cover art was chosen inappropriately There are no flying saucers.There is no alien invasion, either, unless the residents of Asgard and Valhalla are to be considered aliens Poor, poor pigeonholed master del Rey.Nice apocalypse tale though, good for an evening s unwind.
