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.

Aberdeen Hogmanay Fireworks Display
The 2022 Aberdeen Hogmanay fireworks display will be set off at midnight 2023 from the rooftop of His Majesty's Theatre to give a spectacular sight across the city.
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."

Aberdeen New Year Customs
For a guide to how Scottish people celebrate Hogmanay in Scotland and throughout the World see our Hogmanay Customs
page. This includes traditions like reading the fire ashes, first footing, why a tall black haired first footer is lucky, black bun, a lump of coal being lucky and the bells.
Start the New Year with a bit of exercise with the Temperance Walk at Cairnbulg
on the 1 January or the Temperance Walk at St Combs
on the 2 January each year.
If you miss out on the celebrations, perhaps because you've been working Hogmanay night, then you can always celebrate the original Hogmanay according to the old calendar before the date changes in 1660 by going to the Burning of the Clavie at Elgin
