Cluck Selected as Book of The Year Finalist: the "Best Undead Chicken Novel" earns Accolades, Praise

Award-winning author Eric D. Knapp’s newest novel, “Cluck: Murder Most Fowl,” has been selected as a finalist in the ForeWord Book Of The Year (BOTY) awards.

PRLog - March 18, 2008 - UNION, N.H. -- The “best undead chicken novel of all time” is being lauded with early praise for its skillful combination of two conflicting genres, horror and comedy.  The book was selected as a finalist in the ForeWord "Book of The Year" award in the horror category. Early reviews echo Cluck's recent success:

"One might predispose that a book about zombie chickens would be low-brow and intellectually void. That is certainly not the case with author Eric D. Knapp’s ‘Cluck: Murder Most Fowl’, a literary romp through the world of undead chickens, and underdog anti-heroes ... Cluck is a tongue planted firmly in beak, hilarious trip that will leave your guts busted and have you clucking for a sequel."  Geoff Bough, editor of Revenant Magazine.

“[Cluck] introduces two new elements to the zombie mythos: zombie chickens; and a thoroughly developed premise and plot that combine humor with horror ... [Cluck is] in the vein of Bruce Campbell films like ‘Army of Darkness’ and ‘Bubba Ho-Tep.’” Matt Kanner, editor, The Wire.

“Even though this is a book that fits into a very narrow niche (zombie chickens), the writing is good enough to make this book a genre buster. ... Cluck is a more than decent literary effort. This is destined to be a cult classic.”  R.W. Ridley, author of The Oz Chronicles.

“The best undead chicken novel of all time!”  Lloyd Kaufman, director of “Poultrygeist.”

Cluck is an evocative story of growth and destiny in a surreal world of ghostly fowl, talking cars, and a sentient farm.  The plot outlines the culmination of an epic battle between good and evil, living and dead, man and chicken.  For the lover of comedy with a twist, “Cluck: Murder Most Fowl” is a veritable Indian burn of mystery, adventure, horror, and humor.
