Charlie Higson wants zombies!

Here's a one-off opportunity to appear as an extra in the trailer for Charlie Higson’s new book

Fan of The Enemy series by Fast Show legend turned author Charlie Higson ? Then you could be in the trailer for his new book, The Sacrifice . Filming takes place on Saturday 30 June and a small army of zombie "sickos" is required for filming at a secret location in London.

This is the fourth in a series of trailers for the cult zombie series, and is written and directed by Charlie Higson himself. The Sacrifice is the fourth title in the series and will be published on Thursday 20 September.

To enter, zombie hopefuls must be over 16 and will need to send a photo of themselves and no more than 50 words describing why they would make a good zombie to puffin@uk.penguingroup.com by Tuesday 26 June (that's this time next week! Hurry up!). Spaces are limited and the lucky ones chosen to take part will be notified the following day. For full details and terms and conditions, go to www.the-enemy.co.uk/extras .

Set in and around London, the events in The Enemy series take place in a world where a mystery disease has broken out affecting only adults. Some survive, but those that do become hideous zombies with an appetite for human flesh. The Enemy series has now sold over 200,000 copies in the UK alone. We interviewed Higson when the 2009 book launched and you can read that interview here .
