Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Giant creatures have been a staple of science fiction for decades. So has the idea of an overwhelming force of insects or animals as a threat to humanity and the future of the world. These two ideas are combined in Bryant's "giANTS" as a story not about giant monsters threatening humanity, but about the opposite, and the clever use of the square-cube law from biology to stop them.

Published in Analog, August 1979. Reprinted in The Ascent of Wonder (1994).
