The Unicorn
An Historical Fantasy
by John Boos

A little horse in prehistoric times is transformed into a mythical being—a Unicorn—by a blue light that emanates from a crater on the moon, remnant of an Ancient Civilisation. Blessed with unusual powers of travel across countries and continents, Uni the Unicorn runs through time and all across the world, visiting and experiencing countries, cultures, religions, and peoples. He wanders through the centuries, and finally returns to the Ancient Civilisation on the moon. Through the liberties of fantasy storytelling, Uni allows readers to explore time, cultures, and tremendous historical events, and invites readers to observe and take part in history. Wonderfully creative and insightful, Uni explores how humanity’s problems and interests today are echoes of historical events long past, and gives us a better understanding of mankind and our own self.

A fantasy story starting from the earliest days of living creatures, of which the unicorn, an unknown and impossible creature, is the main character. He runs through the main events of human history, giving the impression of Mankind's importance in the general scheme of things.
