JUSTIN HILL was recently selected to write Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, due out in Spring, 2016.  His acclaimed first novel, The Drink and Dream Teahouse, won the 2003 Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, a 2002 Betty Trask Award and was banned by the Chinese government.

His second novel, Passing Under Heaven, won the 2005 Somerset Maugham Award. Shieldwall, the first of his Conquest Trilogy, chronicling the momentous events surrounding the Battle of Hastings, was published in May 2011 and was a Sunday Times Book of the Year.  Veering away from the written page, he launched the acclaimed Asia Literary Review Blog in 2013. 

Justin is a Senior Editor at the Asia Literary Review.

In February 2016 the ALR published a special subscribers' eBook supplement with an extract from Justin Hill's new book, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, published by Weinstein Books to accompany the sequel to Ang Lee's original oscar-winning film.
