“ROBIN HOOD & FRIAR TUCK – ZOMBIE KILLERS”
A Canterbury Tale by Paul Freeman
Published by Coscom Entertainment, Canada
One of the main reasons that the legend of Robin Hood has been around for some 800 years is because the repeated telling of the popular tale has seen the story imaginatively re-worked and freshly presented to appeal to different generations.
Well, Paul Freeman’s latest interpretation adds yet another, perhaps somewhat bizarre, take on the legend with his skilfully written Canterbury Tale-style narrative poem “Robin Hood & Friar Tuck – Zombie Killers”
However, don’t be put off by the title, because even if the horror genre does not personally appeal to you, Freeman’s story-line is cleverly constructed and has been lovingly crafted in some quality narrative prose.
If you can “shut your eyes in the squeamish bits” then this unique version portrays the world’s most popular folk hero in a new and unusual perspective. It is possibly “an acquired taste” and perhaps a little over-descriptive in parts but it is most definitely worth a read to fully appreciate the author’s ingenuity.
