“Giant Killer,” Raymond Chandler, 1945

“Giant Killer,” Raymond Chandler, 1945 – A mysterious protagonist must fight for supremacy in a cramped tunnel world.  Once he becomes leader, his thoughts turn to the giants outside.

Comments: This story is remarkable for how long the protagonist’s body is left “blank,” until the very end and we realize who and what he is through “clues.”  Read in The Astounding-Analog Reader, Volume 1.

Author: Wikipedia: “Raymond Thornton Chandler (July 23, 1888 – March 26, 1959) was an American novelist and screenwriter.”
