PRASIE FOR CLUCK
"Eric D. Knapp's 'Cluck: Murder Most Fowl' is one of the best books we've reviewed so far on Odyssey Reviews. This tongue-in-cheek (or beak) work of brilliance will surely make you laugh. The writing is on par with the likes of Terry Pratchett. The story is brilliant, the writing unbelievably good" - Odyssey Reviews

"When you can make a zombie chicken an unforgettable villain, you're doing something right. My prediction is that this is destined to be a cult classic." - R.W. Ridley, author of The Oz Chronicles

"Definitely amusing and most bizarre this is an out of the ordinary first in the series which will have you clucking for more" - Ann Marie Chalmers, Front Street Reviews

"With a unique blend of comedy and good vs. evil, Cluck manages not only to unfold an entertaining story but also to be incredibly humorous and very well written." - Revenant Magazine

Editorial Reviews

Revenant Magazine
Ancient evils have trapped the souls of a group of hens somewhere between life and death, and Bobby Garfundephelt, trapped inside the farm must make his way though the maze of the farm while avoiding the deadly traps of the evil Rooster King and his army. Fortunately for Bobby, the Exorciste de Volaille... a sort of exorcist of poultry has caught wind of the situation and must now enter the evils of the henhouse to rescue Bobby and face off against the evil Rooster King in an epic battle. Cluck is a tongue planted firmly in beak, hilarious trip that will leave your guts busted and have you clucking for a sequel.
The Wire
[Cluck] introduces two new elements to the zombie mythos: 1) Zombie chickens; 2) A thoroughly developed premise and plot that combine humor with horror. ... in the vein of Bruce Campbell films like 'Army of Darkness' and 'Bubba Ho-Tep.'

    Where Evil Comes to Roost!

    Somewhere outside of Detriot Michigan, a spectral cosmic light lasting only moments, intersects the souls of a young suburban boy named Arnold and a fabulously large Rooster. Afterward, Arnold is imbued with a second sight allowing him to see the souls of those around him, including animals ¿ especially chickens. Seeing souls gives Arnold a slight glimpse into the future as the souls actions occur just before those of their corporeal hosts. Though an advantage in sports where Arnold can anticipate his opponents every move, it also sets him apart from the rest of humanity causing his eventual banishment by his parents to a home for boys. Recognized by Father Beau as gifted in second site, Arnold is sent to France where he joins a secret order of those men charged with banishing the souls of trapped fowl to the next life. However, though the order exists, none have the site of Arnold who quickly demonstrates his. He eventually becomes Armand - the Exorciste de Volaille - the poultry exorcist! <BR/><BR/>Meanwhile, across the world, the Rooster has also been forever changed by the light. Capable of thought and even speech, the Rooster becomes king of an ever expanding farm owned an operated by Bobby Garfundephelt and his wife. However, all is not well on the farm and without giving too much of the plot away, evil takes route on the farm and Bobby is forever haunted by the undead chickens and their Rooster king. Only Armand, now aged and scared with the wounds from setting straight the worlds ¿fowl¿ wrongs, can save Bobby. Or can he?...<BR/><BR/>Eric Knapp¿s Cluck: Murder Most Fowl is a masterpiece. I honestly did not believe I would like this book as much as I did. Reminiscent of the Rod Serling¿s Twilight Zone or even the best of what Tales from the Crypt had to offer, Knapp creates a intriguing and engaging tale of three lives intertwined and changed forever. This is an incredibly creative piece of fiction that in lesser hands would have come across at best campy and at worst just plain stupid. Rather, Knapp has pulled off an amazingly entertaining novel. The graphics by Ian Richard Miller at the onset of each chapter are perfect and are displayed in the oval shape of an egg. Completing the professional and all encompassing feel for the story is the unique font titling each chapter.<BR/><BR/>I don¿t give out 5 stars easily and never expected to do so when I started this book. But truthfully, this is one of the most creative, different, offbeat funny, and intriguing books I¿ve read this year. It is definitely not mainstream and one might have to be in the right mood to appreciate it¿s brilliance, but I believe few would be disappointed in reading Cluck (I can¿t believe I¿m actually typing this). Good luck Mr. Knapp and congratulations on an extremely well written tale. <BR/><BR/>Todd A Fonseca, author of The Time Cavern
