Balach Cluaran Donna Newman Thistle Boy Oor Wullie Duthie Park Aberdeen
Artist Donna Newman has taken inspiration from the national emblem of Scotland, the thistle, since the 15th century. Balach Cluaran translates from the Gaelic as Thistle Boy and this Oor Wullie figurine, at the fountain at the Duthie Park, Aberdeen, is painted as the Green Man. Note the thorny leaves entwining his limbs and his prickly purple flower head. His bucket has been changed into a terracotta plant pot and you can see snails, bees and ladybirds.

My new novel:
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.
