Norden, Eric

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of US author Eric Pelletier (1899-1979), who began publishing work of genre interest with "The Primal Solution" in Cavalier for January 1968, in which a Jewish scientist develops mental Time Travel, inhabits the mind of Hitler and tries to get him to commit suicide – unsuccessfully, creating instead within Hitler his hatred for Jews. Norden assembled his short work in Starsongs and Unicorns: Journeys Through Time and Space (coll 1978). His novel, The Ultimate Solution (1973), depicts a Nazi-dominated New York (see Hitler Wins), a state of affairs made possible by the assassination of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1933, as a consequence of which America remained too long a noncombatant in World War Two. Slavery has been reinstituted. [JC/MA]
