Charlie Higson wants to scare the living daylights out of you

With the Young Bond series complete (for now) in the UK, what's next for author Charlie Higson? The Young Bond Dossier has the answer: He wants to "scare the living daylights" out of the children of Britain.

The website has scored the first promo cover art and teaser for Charlie's all-new horror series for Puffin, The Enemy.

They’ll chase you. They’ll rip you open. They’ll feed on you...

When the sickness came, every parent, policeman, politician – every adult – fell ill. The lucky ones died. The others are crazed, confused and hungry. Only children under fourteen remain, and they’re fighting to survive. Now there are rumours of a safe place to hide. And so a gang of children begin their quest across London, where all through the city – down alleyways, in deserted houses, underground – the grown-ups lie in wait. But can they make it there – alive?
The Enemy will be published by Puffin (UK) and Disney-Hyperion (U.S.) in September 2009. The UK edition can be pre-ordered now at Amazon.co.uk. You can sign up for news updates at the-enemy.co.uk.
