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.

Last year the SSE Scottish Music Awards raised more than £140,000, which helped facilitate additional music therapists and music sessions for vulnerable children and adults throughout Scotland.
Donald MacLeod, Chairman of Nordoff Robbins Scotland, said:
The SSE Scottish Music Awards are one of the main reasons Nordoff Robbins is able to continue delivering life-changing music therapy to so many vulnerable people across Scotland.
In the past year alone, thanks to SSE and our other valued partners, we have been able to impact the lives of more than 450 people, delivering more than 8000 sessions conducted by our expert therapists.
With SSE's support again this year, we can continue to grow the charity and provide music therapy, which is so vital, to more and more children and adults across Scotland.
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."
