Look Out For … Chalk by Paul Cornell

Look Out For … Chalk by Paul Cornell

A dark tale of bullying, vengeance and magic that wallows in the murkier side of nostalgia that the likes of Stranger Things only hint at.

Andrew Waggoner has always hung around with the losers in his 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.

Why We’re Excited About This Book:

Set in Thatcher’s 80s, Chalk promises to deliver a dark tale of bullying, vengeance and magic that wallows in the murkier side of nostalgia that the likes of Stranger Things only hint at. With a premise reminiscent of other horrors set in those awkward coming of ages years , notably King’s IT, Chalk looks to be a reminder of the wonder and terror of those difficult years seen through the prose of a Hugo Award nominated author.

 

Chalk is out on 1April 2017 and is available from Amazon.
