Today we officially launch this site to remember and celebrate the life and work of Reginald Hill. It will run actively from 1 to 30 June with one post per day (sometimes two) and will include:
- personal articles from Reg Hill’s friends and colleagues
- articles on his novels, short stories and other work
- articles on TV adaptations
- competitions to win prizes of books and other memorabilia. (With thanks to HarperCollins.)
We have a wonderful selection of people making contributions here, including some well-known names in the world of crime fiction and who knew Reg Hill very well indeed.
We will update the schedule and the list of contributors as this week progresses, so please drop by again to see what’s coming! You can also leave a comment on the ‘Tell & Share’ page if you have a great story to share, or simply want to add your own thoughts on Reg Hill. If you’d like to get in touch with a possible contribution, please visit the ‘Contact’ page for details.
Do mark June 1st in your diary, for it’s the start of all-things-Reg during this year’s Crime Writers’ Association’s Crime Writing Month. If you’re on twitter, look out for the hashtag #crimemonth for details of lots of other events as well as the posts from this site.
We hope you will enjoy reading what we have in store for you in June.
