       Additional Information  
      Centaur Chronicles follows the adventures of a human scientist from an alternate time line that ends up on the planet Mythos. This college professor gets unwillingly transformed into a centaur to save himself from dying in a laboratory experiment gone horribly wrong. The "magic" of Mythos is his only hope of survival, as technology is useless in his particular case. As a centaur, he adopts the name Centaur, and he has to get used to his new, much larger, muscular body. Centaur quickly learns his new body has instincts of its own that will not be denied. Along the way, he becomes the ideal leader of the centaur community. Part of his new job is to figure out how to best combine ancient mythology and futuristic technology in such as way as to best benefit all centaurs and his new adopted homeworld. At the same time, he has to cope with the loss of his own personal past, as it is discovered he and Ambassador Cat share more than just common genetics.
