Ring The Hill
By Tom Cox
A book about hills. Actually, that’s not true. It’s a book around hills: the magical names we have given hills over the centuries, the legends associated with them, the history hidden in their folds, the exhilarated feeling you get when you’ve walked at pace to the top of one on a crisp autumn day, the perspective they give us on the land, on life.

A new book!
As you're someone who's been kind enough to support a previous book I've published with Unbound, I wanted to let you know that I'm writing a new novel: the follow-up to Villager, to be published early next year. It's set in 1983, on the Nottinghamshire-Derbyshire border, where I grew up, and is about mining, aliens and lots of other things. If you'd like to, you can reserve a copy and contribute to the book's funding here: unbound.com/books/1983/. You'll also find an explanation of why I'm writing it, plus a little extract, and some very nice pledge rewards (including a crocheted scarf like the one I'm wearing in the attached photo).
I also now have a Substack page: I've been doing LOADS of writing on it, plus a new podcast, which is two episodes old, with a third imminent. If you'd like to subscribe, to make sure you don't miss any of this, you can do so via this link. It's completely free, but there is a paid option, which entitles you to some extra bits and bobs, significantly helps me write and record more, gradually escape the evils of social media and keep the podcast advert-free.
Finally, if you missed out on Villager in hardback, the paperback (which has an even lovelier cover, in my opinion) will be arriving on March 30th. You can pre-order a copy via Blackwells, with free worldwide delivery, here.
All the best, and thank you for reading,
