Giants is the story I wrote in the middle of writing "Mrs. Vu's Morning Ride", which will appear in "Steampunk: The Second Revolution". I got the idea when we were returning to Frankfurt, where we spent our vacation last summer. There were two buildings on the left side of the road, something like in the photo at the left, only that not all the lights were on, so as we passed by them they really looked like the two giants featured in the story. I still kick myself for not taking a picture since we had not one but two opportunities to do it. The photo used here was taken in Vienna the summer before that, but it's basically the same concept.
Enjoy and have a spring full of sun and smiles!
