Working one last job for the Bureau of Land Management, archaeologist TOM DIGBY finds himself confronted with a strange manmade hill on an old ranch in a remote corner of New Mexico.
After being brutally attacked by the ranch’s owner and posse, TOM escapes the ranch and hill’s mysterious power- but finds himself trapped in the surrounding town.
The problem is, TOM DIGBY cannot stop digging. And the town and its bizarre residents keep drawing him into the hill’s larger conspiracy- with a retired Bureau agent at its core.
TOM finds that he might be the latest in a series of land surveyors destined to vanish on the ranch and hill- and that might be the least of his worries.
THE HILL AND THE HOLE is dramatically expanded from a ‘weird fiction’ short story by renowed sci-fi/fantasy author Fritz Leiber.
