What do ancient Greece, Golden Age science fiction, horses, and the art of costuming all have in common? Michael W. Bard, of course!

From generation ships to unicorns and from the psychology of the costumed performer to the carefully-calculated escape velocity of a bunny-taur, these are the worlds of the noted “furry” author Michael Bard! Come and ride along with the Galactic Patrol, construct a dragon miniature that has a mind of its own, and learn what it means to be trapped in the role of a method actor for the rest of time.

Michael was taken from us far too early – he passed away unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm in 2010 at the age of 44. But his dreams live on in this volume to be enjoyed by the rest of us forevermore. And best of all, the proceeds go to benefit the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.

Michael’s passions were myriad, and each of them left their unmistakable footprints on his fiction. So come with us and sail across endless seas with a squirrel and an otter as shipmates, and find the true meaning of love in the depths of a stained glass window. Become a season, and prove yourself worthy to be the first equine ever to join the Galactic Patrol. Take a little break from reality and perceive the universe as Michael did, through his gentle Canadian soul. And when you’re done, you’ll miss Michael every bit as much as we do.
