About midway through a horror film - at that climatic part where they finally reveal the monster fully for the first time - a thought hit me. Why are these monsters never really that big? Sure we get sea beasts with tentacles that stretch for tens of metres and skyscraper-climbing primates that tower over the average human, but where are the primates that are the size of a skyscraper? Where are the sea beasts with tentacles the thickness of a train carriage?

Big is home to a collection of stories that feature large, enormous or gigantic characters and concepts and, in this situation, it is most definitely a case of bigger is better.
