"George Orwell spent his life believing that he had killed a fellow pupil at Eton using voodoo, according to a new biography. The late Sir Steven Runciman, the medieval historian, revealed in a letter written shortly before his death that he and Orwell practised black magic on a wax effigy of Philip Yorke, an older boy who had been threatening and offensive."
