Size change in fiction

  (Redirected from Resizing (fiction))

Resizing (including miniaturization, growth, shrinking, and enlargement) is a recurring theme in fiction, in particular in fairy tales, fantasy, and science fiction. Resizing is often achieved through the consumption of mushrooms or toadstools, which might have been established due to their psychedelic properties,[1] magic, freaks of nature, or size-changing rays of ambiguous properties.[2]
