How do supporter names work?

Every person who pledges to help to make a book gets their name included in a supporter section as a thank you as long as they pledge before the list closing deadline. If you want to add a different name, this can be changed in your account after you have completed your pledge.

"To be a gardener in this time

is not easy

and we might be the last…

Papa and me."

Gigantium is a unique science fiction verse novel told through three intertwining stories. In a near future, an extraterrestrial race overruns the largest cities on earth stripping them of their commodities and harnessing their communications systems, nicknamed 'Blues' the aliens rule through fear and intimidation leading to mass civil unrest and a strong-armed resistance movement that sees the world on the brink of all-out war.
On the outskirts of one such city, a group of civilians attempts to establish some normality away from the fighting. We follow Papa, a horticulturist and his son Jacob who tend to the gardens that provide fruit and vegetables for families in the area, whilst also curating his seed bank, which could be the key to their ultimate survival, Max, a rescuer who heads into the city each day to tend to victims of the atrocities and as the fighting gets closer we join Maya who with her family must take the perilous journey across the city to reach the safety of the resistance camps.
