Features

34 True Giants (cover story)
Mark A Hall and Loren Coleman believe that giants once walked the Earth, before they were killed off by the hostility of their human neighbors. What's more, the fossil record tells us just what these oversized creatures were... and other evidence suggests that they might be hanging on even today in the world's remotest places...

40 Starlite Man
Merrily Harpur wonders what happened to Maurice Ward - a real-life 'Man in the White Suit' - and his invention, Starlite, a mysterious substance that promised to change the world.

46 The Fake, The Snake and The Sceptic
Steve Moore looks back at Alexander of Abonoteichus, a colourful 'False Prophet' from Roman times, and wonders if he was really a fraud or just suffered from very bad press...
