I kept waiting for some psychological twist that did not take place, and the extreme graphic nature of the ending kept me up a few hours on the night I read this story. The graphic nature of the death reminds me of the ending of the Revenge of the Sith when Anakin falls into the lava pit...except in this case the guy dies without the Force to save him. The plot itself reminds me more or less of Balzac's La Grande Breteche, in which a wronged husband avenges himself upon the adulturer, with the w I kept waiting for some psychological twist that did not take place, and the extreme graphic nature of the ending kept me up a few hours on the night I read this story.

    “Here it is red, blood-red vapour as red and hot as sin; but yonder there, where the moonlight falls on it, and it drives across the clinker-heaps, it is as white as death.” I didn't really feel this one as much of the other ones, but again that idea of being able to extend the concept (just a simple idea of a cone) appears. I did not mind the read, but Wells has written much better from the few stories of his I've read. “Here it is red, blood-red vapour as red and hot as sin; but yonder there, where the moonlight falls on it, and it drives across the clinker-heaps, it is as white as death.” I didn't really feel this one as much of the other ones, but again that idea of being able to extend the concept (just a simple idea of a cone) appears.

    Horrocks, the manager of an ironworks in New Castle, learns that his wife is cheating on him with a local artist. So, Horrocks gives the artist a tour of his facility and then throws him into a furnace, and the scene is described in graphic, macabre fashion.

    Lesson: DO NOT engage in an affair with your friend’s wife. ESPECIALLY if he owns an iron refinery. Word of caution: If you fail to avoid the first two recommendations then do not take a tour of said friends’ iron refinery!

    I read this more than a decade ago and it left an indelible lasting impression. Powerful and scary stuff. Just read it again and was just as impressed. A marvellously unpleasant tale.

    Michael Mills

    A short and surprisingly nasty tale from H.G. Wells. Worth reading for the shock value and visual imagery (both beautiful and profane) but otherwise fairly light.

    Total creepiness in beautiful language. Do NOT read before bedtime!
