On Ron’s Amazing Stories we feature one from last week that has taken the RAS community by storm. Two listeners react to the Lights on Mount Charleston sent last week by Charlie White. James White, no relation to Charlie, reads us a story from Astounding Magazine. It has Yeti, diamonds, and even rockets! We end the show with an Intermission.

Featured Story - The Diamond Thunderbolt by H. Thompson Rich

Our main story this week comes from the pages of Astounding Magazine, July of 1931. It is called,  The Diamond Thunderbolt by H. Thompson Rich and features many answers to questions that I ask myself all of the time. It is expertly read for us by James White.

Locked in a rocket and fired into space!—such was the fate which awaited young Stoddard at the end of the diamond trail!
