The Last Giant (2012)
A modern day fairy-tale. A terror attack leads Kevin and his sister Natalie to seek shelter in a nearby house, where they find a man who has been hiding from the world for 40 years – the last giant.
As the giant befriends them, Kevin and Natalie begin to learn about a strange and magical world. But as the attacks continue, the community begins to turn against itself, leading to a violent confrontation which Kevin and Natalie are powerless to stop.
The Last Giant is an idea I’ve been developing for several years now. As a child I loved fairy-tales and I’ve always been interested by the idea of writing my own. It’s also a social commentary about the terror age and the way fear changes people. I talk more about the genesis of the story in this post.
It should be finished sometime in 2012.
