Publisher's Summary

This story was originally published in Day One, a weekly literary journal dedicated to short fiction and poetry from emerging writers.
From award-winning author Lincoln Michel comes a surrealistic story that suffuses the past with modern twists.
His father bent on making him a true Spanish nobleman, romantic young Eduardo crosses the seas to join his bumbling, megalomaniacal uncle, Cort├ęs. Once he arrives in the new world, Eduardo falls passionately in love with an Aztec princess yet still assumes his place as a reluctant conquistador, waging bloody battle against the natives. In this darkly comic adventure, Michel takes listeners on a wildly imaginative journey past gigantic sea beasts, gold-gobbling Spaniards, and rioting Aztecs to create a thought-provoking glimpse of history and its true authors.
