Stephen Gallagher – Chimera (New English Library, 1991)



No School Until Further Notice.

The village schoolhouse is in use as a morgue. There has been a tragedy at the remote Jenner Clinic. It has always been a place of secrets — and now, something terrible has happened.

Meanwhile, high in the valley by Ravens’ Crag Farm, the Gaskell children reach home. The farmyard is quiet. The gate stands open. The Gaskell boy tugs at his sister’s sleeve. ‘Look,’ he says, and Sarah nods.

In the middle of the yard, the Strange Boy is waiting for them.
