   Carrying on in the tradition of such films as DR CYCLOPS and The INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN (GREAT AND SMALL) as well as an earlier tv series, WORLD OF GIANTS, the first episode showed 7 people aboard a future "stratocruiser" passing through a space/time-warp into a world similar to 20th-century Earth, but where all things, including people, are 12 times larger. The series concerned their predictable encounters with giant people and giant props. Three novelizations by Murray LEINSTER are Land of the Giants * (1968), Land of the Giants \#2:The Hot Spot * (1969) and \#3: Unknown Danger * (1969). Others were Land of the Giants: Flight of Fear * (1969) by Carl Henry RATHJEN and Land of the Giants: The Mean City * (1969) by James Bradwell.
