       Additional Information  
     
      In first-century Scotland, there lived a youth named Albyn, Furbister, a tyrant who is also a giant, and another tyrant-giant named Od McGammon. Both giants are unhappy and jealous of each other and meet for battle in a peat bog. This is a story of the psychology of the giants, of Albyn's part as go-between for them and his trick on Od, of the pridigious world-shaking battle between the giants and their armies. It is full of wit and humor, brilliant satire, penetrating comment on life and love, and masterful, imaginative language.
