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.

Ghost Of A Man Committing Suicide
The ghost of a man taking his own life haunts Dalmarnock Bridge in Glasgow. He is thought to be 30 years of age with short hair and wearing a blue three quarter length coat and black trousers. People who have witnessed the haunting describe the ghost of a man committing suicide as looking real, solid and normal until he jumps from the Dalmarnock Bridge and vanishes into thin air and never hits the water below the Bridge. During the haunt he looks long into the River Clyde before jumping from the Bridge and committing suicide. The identity or name of the ghost is not known nor is the reason for his death by suicide.
History Of Dalmarnock Bridge
There was a Ford at Dalmarnock and in 1821 a timber pay bridge was built for traffic crossing between Rutherglen and Dalmarnock.
In 1846 Dalmarnock became a District of the City of Glasgow.
The timber bridge was replaced in1848 with another wooden bridge.
The construction that can be seen today was built in 1891, near to the original Dalmarnock Ford. The engineers were Crouch and Hogg. The Dalmarnock Road Bridge was the first bridge over the River Clyde to have a flat road surface.
The Dalmarnock Bridge is supported by concrete filled wrought iron cylinders that end on the bedrock 65 feet below the river bed and there are five spans stretching across the Dalmarnock Bridge.
The Dalmarnock Bridge was renovated in 1997 and the bridge deck was replaced with a reinforced concrete deck slab and weather resistant steal beams. The historical Gothic parapets were retained as were the ornamental outer beam facia panels and along with these pieces of history the Dalmarnock Bridge suicide ghost remains and sightings of the ghost hauntings are often reported.

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."
