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.

The Scottish Sunday Post had a sad start to its origins. The newspaper The Post would list the names of the war dead from World War One and this list had to be extended to a Sunday edition because the lists were released on a Saturday evening. This The Post Sunday Special first appeared on 4 October 1914 and proved so popular that after WWI it was decided that it would continue to be a newspaper and so on 19 January 1919 The Sunday Post became part of Scottish history at a cost of only 2d.
Man Without A Memory
The first edition of The Sunday Post had a serialised story called Man Without A Memory which was about a man called Jack who lost in memory in a flying accident in France.
first appeared in The Sunday Post newspaper on the 8 March 1936.
The Honest Truth
The Honest Truth is an ever popular page in The Sunday Post and originated in the 1950s after an interview with boxer Peter Keenan who replied to one question by the editor with "That's the God's Honest Truth." So on 13 April 1958 began one of the longest running features in the Scottish newspaper and its debut was an interview with the man who gave the feature its name, Peter Keenan.
The first monthly Sunday Post colour magazine was published on 4 September 1988.
Lorraine Kelly wrote her first column for The Sunday Post in 1994.
