       Additional Information  
     
      The ancient myth of Hercules, Dejanira, and Nessus the Centaur is retold in this novel as a love triangle of sorts by Jonathan Nestus, a modern-day reincarnation of the Centaur reliving periodic episodes in the life and times of Nessus. The story of Nessus the Centaur is the poignant tale of a half-horse, half-human creature consumed with love for a beautiful, fully-human woman, with the menacing figure of brutal, murderous Hercules hovering in the background. Whether the reader is familiar with Greek mythology or not, this tragic and comic love story is an enthralling read. En route to the shocking end, the author, through his engaging character Jonathan Nestus, retells some of the Greek myths while solemnly insisting, with abundant pseudo-scientific reasoning. that the centaurs actually existed as half-horse, half-human beings—along with the satyrs, mermaids and other weird creatures of those times.
