Ken Altabef. Il Teatro Oscuro. (Interzone #248, Sep-Oct 2013)

interzone248In an Italian city post-war/civil war, an elderly man has a pair of opera glasses that enable him to see the city, the theatre, and the people before it all went to ruin. We find out early on that the theatre is due to be demolished in the morning, the streets are not safe, and it being just a couple of pages long, we quickly come to a conclusion that has no surprises for the regular genre reader.

Nice enough as far as it goes, but it doesn’t go that far.
