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.

It was commissioned by Muse Developments and Aviva Investors.
The leopard was used because it features two leopards in the Aberdeen City coat of arms. This dates back to when they were gifted to the City by King James I for when the City underwrote his expenses when he was held captive in England.
It is 5 metres tall and weighs 2 tonnes. The steel column is 10 metres. Each fragment of steel were individually wielded and it opened to public viewing from the 3 November 2017.
The Aberdeen leopard has been named Poised by the artist.
