The Secret City, by Rick Wilber

★★★☆☆ Average

(Multiverse; Moe Berg) In Moe’s world, the Nazi’s are winning World War II, having already used one nuclear weapon on the remains of the British government in exile. Moe tries to help Enrico Fermi get to America to help build an atom bomb small enough to fit in a plane. (24,117 words; Time: 1h:20m)

Although this is one of several Moe Berg stories, it’s not essential to read the others first.

"The Secret City," by (edited by Sheila Williams), appeared in issue 09-10|18, published on by .

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: There’s plenty of thrills, chills, and excitement, starting from the woman who tries to assassinate Fermi and on through Moe’s recollection of how hard it was to get Fermi out in the first place.

Con: It ends on a cliff hanger. The whole multiverse thing is confusing and not explained (nor was it explained in any previous episode). All of the baseball scenes are long and dull.
