John Varley's idea of how centaurs would be constructed, described in his novel "Titan," was intriguing. However, I don't think he thought things through on the biology. More about this later, but creatures with two completely separate reproductive systems can get pretty complicated. Just for instance, simultaneously carrying two sets of triplets might be pretty inconvenient, not to mention what would happen after they were born!
