The Fence Aberdeen Zombie post apocalyptic military survival Novel Book

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 Lynne Golden Retriever

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."

On the 21 April 2007 Transition Extreme hosted the first day of the War of the Thistles which was organised by Skateboard Scotland. The top Scottish skateboarders attended this first event t Aberdeen's new skatepark.

Transition Extreme skatepark in Aberdeen was officially opened on the 24 May 2007 by Prince Andrew, The Duke of York. He arrived in Aberdeen aboard a Sikorsky S76 helicopter and was shown round Transition Extreme and then saw a display of BMX cycling and skateboarding. Prince Andrew was then given a demonstration on how to climb the 100ft training wall. Afterwards he attended other Aberdeen engagements which included lunch with the new Lord Provost of Aberdeen, Mr Peter Stephen. He then met the Reverend Stephen Taylor (Minister of St Nicholas Kirk) and the Rev Andrew Jolly (Chaplain to the oil and gas industry) before giving a presentation for the Malawi Container Appeal and the Mither Kirk Project. The last engagement for the Royal was to reopen the newly restored Joseph Robertson fish factory which had been destroyed by a fire in 2005.
