Charlie Higson’s back

September 7th, 2012 by Paddy Comments


WHEN SFX compares your work to George Romero, you know you’re doing something right. But then this isn’t Charlie Higson’s first rodeo.
The author has received widespread acclaim for his work on The Fast Show,Shooting Stars and in the literary world for his Young Bond novels and not to mention The Enemy Series.
In fact it’s the fourth instalment of that saga that has the spotlight well and truly positioned on one of Britain’s best loved novelists for the young adult market.
The fourth book in the series, The Sacrifice is released on September 20, and if you’re anything like those at Nerd HQ then you will be counting the days.
The Sacrifice is the latest book in the series that centres on a virus that has destroyed everyone over the age of 14.
No adult has escaped the sickness in these stories set in a post-apocalyptic London.
If you thought young adult fiction couldn’t terrify, then think again. This is as gripping as it gets.

Paddy Ryan, like Buck Rogers, is a man out of time. He's a loose cannon haunted by his past who, when he's not making painful attempts at humour, is busy watching as many geeky films and TV shows as possible. An avid reader, he has vowed one day to start that novel he's been talking about for years. Born in the late 70s, he's an 80s kid at heart who sees nothing wrong with spending hours upon hours watching season three of Robin Of Sherwood. Jason Connery wasn't that bad you know! He's got a million ideas for comic books but thankfully doesn't know anyone with the time to draw them and call his bluff on that one! The Empire Strikes Back is his favourite film, Doctor Who is his TV show of choice and when it comes to books ... well that's a whole other story! I'm Paddy Ryan and you're not...
