Cowdray Hall Aberdeen
Cowdray Hall Aberdeen was gifted to Aberdeen by the Cowdray Family in 1926. Several years later, in 1930, the Aberdeen Chamber Music Club formed and performed in the Cowdray Hall in Aberdeen which was noted for its acoustics. Cowdray Hall Aberdeen remains one of Aberdeen's most popular concert venues.
As can be seen in the photograph of Cowdray Hall there is a war memorial to those from Aberdeen who died during World War One and World War Two. Inside the Cowdray Hall there are more war memorials. Sadly photography is not permitted inside Cowdray Hall and AboutAberdeen have been unable to get a photo of the inside of Cowdray Hall Aberdeen.

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.

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."
