Ernest Hill (14 July 1915--May 2003) was an English science fiction author and advertisement manager who was active as a writer from the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s. Hill worked as a farmer, policeman, soldier, civil servant, and from 1955 onward advertisement manager for the technical journal Consulting Engineer. He was also a script writer for Zeta from 1963-1964.

Hill first published science fiction story was "The Last Generation," which appeared in the January 1964 issue of New Worlds. His short stories in the genre are considered of some interest, particularly the Dystopian "Atrophy" and the satiric "Chemotopia." Others, such as "Joik," together with his novels, are not rated as highly.

Hill also composed poetry as a hobby. He also wrote plays; he had a long-standing interest in verse plays acted by various amateur theater groups, and won first prize at the Beckenham Drama Festival in 1958 for his play "Gods in Retirement." He continued to keep up on developments in theater and literature throughout his life. His literary interests included Frederik Pohl, Vladimir Nabokov, and Isaac Asimov.
