265pp. Very Good. Crisp, clean and tightly bound.

"This is what horror ought to be: primal, personal, and powerful." -- Seanan McGuire.

Paul Cornell plumbs the depths of magic and despair in Chalk, a brutal exploration of bullying in Margaret Thatcher's England." Andrew Waggoner has always hung around with his fellow losers at school, desperately hoping each day that the school bullies -- led by Drake -- will pass him by in search of other prey. But one day they force him into the woods, and the bullying escalates into something more; something unforgivable; something unthinkable.Broken, both physically and emotionally, something dies in Waggoner, and something else is born in its place.In the hills of the West Country a chalk horse stands vigil over a site of ancient power, and there Waggoner finds in himself a reflection of rage and vengeance, a power and persona to topple those who would bring him low.
