George Zebrowski. The Genoa Passage. (Interzone #244, Jan-Feb 2013)

Almost 30 years since Zebrowski’s ‘The Eichmann Variations’ was a Nebula Finalist, Zebrowski provides another variation on the theme, against postulating multiple Eichmanns – this time with each being gunned down by victims or relatives of victims of the Holocaust. The physics of this are not addressed, as it is again the moral aspect – does the protagonist, somewhat removed from a direct connection to the Holocaust, feel it morally acceptable to pull a trigger?

It’s a cold, clinical, dispassionate consideration of the issue.
