Summary There's a heavy price to pay for the manipulation of nature in this novel from the revered author of The War of the Worlds and The Time Machine. It begins as a boon for mankind-the creation of the substance Herakleophorbia IV. When fed to farm animals, it causes them to grow to enormous size. But when it is accidentally allowed to enter the local food chain, the consequences prove monstrous: Human children exposed to it grow into giants, reaching forty feet in height. At first, these giants are tolerated. Then, as they mature, they are scorned. And as they slowly begin to realize their own power and right to exist, they are feared. Humanity must face the dawn of a new era of manmade evolution-while grappling to comprehend the possibility of its own ultimate demise. The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth is a thought-provoking and thrilling novel from a four-time nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature, the author of such all-time classics as TheIsland of Doctor Moreau and The Invisible Man. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
