Here is a short story about a master of the universe (his own universe) who matches the greater freedoms of being a tradesman against the responsibilities and questionable rewards of a business owner or executive. Although he could be equally successful at either end of the spectrum, he chooses the path less traveled and becomes the champion of the less privileged and lesser developed souls in his world. An ex-US Marine pilot, ex-professional gambler, ex-family man, and professional master welder (among other things) Jack Diamond finds himself at opposite poles with his old Marine buddy, Don Hendrix, who owns the ship-building company where he works. Jack is never quite sure whether he's really in charge of all his circumstances or not. Only time and some dimension beyond his comprehension add substance to his experience, wisdom, intelligence and personal power-which never seem equal to the challenges placed before him. If you ever wondered how a well-educated, highly-intelligent soul would choose to move backward down the ladder of so-called success in an entertaining, challenging, and fun-filled manner, Jack Diamond will show you the way.
