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.

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."

Kittybrewster Primary School pupils learnt Yoga thanks to the Union Square’s Community Bursary which enabled them to start a free lunchtime club for pupils of all ages throughout the school. The school yoga club runs for ten week periods from Monday to Thursday and is taught by local professionals. Other Kittybrewster Primary School lunchtime clubs include Creative dance, Storytelling, Creating music and Yoga. It is hoped that the clubs, including the yoga club, will inspire the pupils to keep up a new interest, which they may not otherwise have the opportunity to do.
Ian Macindoe, head teacher, at Kittybrewster Primary School said:
The lunchtime clubs provide our pupils with a new, fun experience, and, most importantly, for free! Earlier in the school year, we asked the pupils how they might like to spend their lunch breaks and what sorts of hobbies would interest them. Now, thanks to the funding from Union Square, we are able to make many of these requests a reality. The activities have proved hugely popular since launching at the beginning of the new term just a few weeks ago, so much so that the dance group are even planning a Christmas performance for the whole school! We hope to be able to carry on the fun come the New Year.
Penny Godfrey, marketing manager, for Union Square said of this Aberdeen yoga club:
The community bursary programme presents an opportunity to help local charities and organisations make a real difference at grass roots level. Kittybrewster Primary is a great example of this, and the funding has allowed the school to introduce a whole host of new activities to pupils. These are great confidence boosters as well as being lots of fun and it is great to hear they are being so well received.
