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.

A new addition to this Scottish festival is dance, where there will be classes in step, Scottish country, and ceilidh dancing.
Art classes in the visual arts section include oil painting, water colours, pastels, photography, ceramics, willow weaving, glass painting, mosaics and paper folding.
There will also be workshops in short story writing and poetry in the literature section and a two day class in drama and stagecraft.
Each evening there will be entertainment from The Festival Fringe and during the days there will be competitions and demonstrations.
The Braemar Creative Arts Festival brings a market at St Margaret's Church on the Saturday followed by a Village Hall ceilidh in the evening where there will be an open mic. The event finishes with Sunday brunch at The Bothy.
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."
