Cyclops children don't live long. At least that's what the cyclops woman's mom told her. Now, she's 38 and working in her parent's failing coffee shop, hiding her single eye under a pair of sunglasses. Failing, that is, until they get the idea to charge for a chance to touch a piece of the staff of Drogo, a fourteenth-century Flemish saint and patron of coffee house keepers and unattractive people. When the novelty wears off, though, the cyclop's woman's parents want her to be come the new attraction. Terrified of exposure, she leaves home to search for other cyclops people. Her journey leads from an Appalachian village populated with alligator-skinned people, to a restaurant in New Jersey that caters to cats, to an estate in England where she meets a crotchety old cyclops who has made his living herding sheep, and finally to a cathedral in France where Drogo spent his last days.

About the Author:

Teresa Milbrodt grew up in Bowling Green, Ohio, where she developed an odd affinity for Midwestern flatness and gray skies. She received her MFA in Creative Writing and her MA in American Culture Studies from Bowling Green State University, and she is the author of a short story collection, Bearded Women: Stories. She lives in Gunnison, Colorado, with her husband Tristan and cat Aspen. When she's not conjuring demons at her laptop, she enjoys cooking, sewing, and questing for the perfect cup of coffee.
