Summary

Summary

Winner of the Beginnings of Horror Award! The ancient Cherokees knew him as "Untsaiyi", or Brass, because of his metallic skin. He was one of the old ones, the original beings who lived long before man walked the earth. And he would live forever. He cared nothing for humans, though he could take their form--or virtually any form--at will. For untold centuries the world has been free of his deadly games, but now Brass is back among us and no one who sees him will ever be the same--if they survive at all.
