Many humans fears are realized in the world of darkness. Among them are the vampires, who call themselves the Kindred because they are a breed set apart from man. But these vampires are not just mad beasts or solitary hunters. Completely hidden from human eyes by a plan the Kindred call the Masquerade is an entire society of vapires. The disputes and alliances that have formed this society have also built powerful nations and drug great men to their graves.
No place in the world of vampires is quite like San Francisco. It is a melting pot set outside the always arcane and dangerous dynamics of Kindred politics. But because of San Francisco's position as a nuetral territory, countless plots and mad plans are dreamt in and executed from the city. Herein are the beginnings and players for some of those unspeakable schemes.
The beast within contains stories of the Kindred in the world of darkness by S. P. Somtow, Louis Tilton, Matthew Costello, Lawrence Watt-Evans, and nine other authors, including several authors who have contributed to the development of the world of darkness.
