Reassembled from partial quotes in archived forum messages by: David Morgan-Mar

The author writes:

Contrary to popular belief, the people of Lilliput are normal size. It's just that when Gulliver approached the island, he and his ship were magically enlarged without him realising, so that the Lilliputians appeared smaller.

This completely changes the context of the novel Gulliver's Travels, in such a way that anyone who has read it since it was published nearly 300 years ago has an entirely wrong impression of it.

Just wait until we get on to Moby-Dick.
