It's worth noting that Nephilim have been the subject of a great deal of
fiction, from fantasy novels (one series by Storm Constantine, for
instance, and they turn up in Madeline L'Engle as well) to In Nomine role
playing ideas to apocalyptic Christian fiction.  They're a favorite of a
few species of nut cases and conspiracy theorists, too, so be cautious of
the sources of the stuff that you find on the net about them.

As with a lot of other things, the amount of space they received in the
Bible is inversely proportional to the amount of energy people put into
debating them.
