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.

Portions are large, so much so that we would recommend groups or couples ordering one rice and one nan bread as your choice of accompaniment because they are large enough to share.
Chocolate mints and some delightful Indian sweets which look like hundreds and thousands are served with the bill. These have a refreshing cinnamon mint taste.
Service is very gentlemanly: doors are opened upon entry and exit, a warm welcoming smile is always given. Chairs are pulled out and tables are well set out with shiny silver cutlery and linen napkins and table clothes. Don't be fooled by the cheap prices - this is a well decorated and maintained restaurant with first class service and food freshly made by some great chefs.
Window seats give a good outlook onto Union Street where the hustle and bustle of the shoppers and traffic gives a sharp contrast to the relaxed interior of the Saffron restaurant.
The business lunch is served from noon until 4pm. Thereafter the extensive main menu is available - still at very reasonable prices.
Takeaway orders are available and there is free delivery within a 6 mile radius of the restaurant. The restaurant closes at 11:30pm.
There is a flight of stairs to climb before getting to the restaurant, and a further flight of stairs takes you to the toilets. Unfortunately there are no disabled facilities and no disabled access.

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."
