The Fence Aberdeen Zombie post apocalyptic military survival Novel Book

The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Aberdeen Lynne Golden Retriever

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.

We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.

The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:

"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."

The Ghost Of Ardoe House Hotel

The Hotel has a white lady ghost who is thought to be Katherine Ogston, the wife of Alexander Milne Ogston who was a soap merchant, who purchased the mansion house in 1839. There is a portrait of Katherine on the main stairs and this is where her ghost has been seen.

Others have reported that the ghost is a daughter of a former owner who was raped and became pregnant. She later killed herself and her child.

Christmas Meals

On Christmas day 2007 Ardoe House Hotel manager, Mr Chris Lynch, delivered sixty five gourmet meals to the Aberdeen homeless charity The Cyrenians on Summer Street. The staff wanted to support The Cyrenians after they had their summer ball in September at Ardoe House Hotel. At the time they also generously donated an auction prize of a hotel stay to include a visit to the spa. The Christmas meals allowed The Cyrenians to serve the homeless people a hot meal when usually their Christmas meal would have been a cold buffet. It also means that The Cyrenians can serve the buffet on boxing day increasing the Christmas meals to the homeless of Aberdeen City.
