Justin Hill has been likened to a George Orwell, a boxer, and Leo Tolstoy. His bestselling novels have been picked by the Washington Post, Sunday Times, Times, Telegraph on Sunday and Independent as their Books of the Year. His first novel The Drink and Dream Teahouse was banned in China; while Passing Under Heaven was described as ‘something to be stepped into as indulgently as a long, fragrant bath.’
Viking Fire and Shieldwall are the first two books in the Conquest Series, which challenge traditional narratives that surround the Battle of Hastings, in 1066.
Justin has been invited to speak at several international events, including the International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds, the International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo and the Viking World, Diversity and Change, University of Nottingham.
He’s been a keen follower of the 40K Universe since it started in the late 80s.
