Each time a colony of Earthmen began to stir the ashes of half-forgotten technology, the Shing, mindlying ravagers of Terra, would crush them out.
"Only one man dared stand against the Shing's hunger for Earth conquest, and that man - the alien with the amber eyes - would first have to prove to a lie-tormented humanity that he himself was not a tool of the enemy Shing . . . "; 5" - 6" Tall
