Wells' strange tale about a 'diamond maker' who, after experiencing various mishaps, happens to meet the protagonist and offer one of his diamonds......

Very interesting story, not too bad. The dialogue is a bit "meh" but it's an interesting scenario.
Noel
More interesting than his other shorts, but still wouldn't read it again.
Richard
