Subtitled "The Sword is Mightier than the Hen" this horror/adventure novel by popular author Meredith Sock (Who was as renowned as he was reviled), tells the story of a giant, prehistoric chicken terrorising a land of farmers. Scenes like the one where Megafowl creeps from behind a barn to peck a whole yard of farm hands to death are said to be responsible to for a shortage of agricultural workers in the years that followed the book's publication. The tale ends happily, however, when a Hero by the name of Armageddon Smith arrives to slay the mighty beast. The sequel, "Megafowl 2: Revenge of the Hen" was banned for fear it would drive communities like Oakfield into economic ruin. Copies are rare and highly sought after.
