Matthew Hughes: the Archonate

Matthew Hughes

The name I answer to is Matt Hughes. I write fantasy and suspense fiction. To keep the two genres separate, I now use my full name, Matthew Hughes, for fantasy, and the shorter form for the crime stuff. I also write media tie-ins as Hugh Matthews.

Raffalon on Amazon

I’ve put the Raffalon collection up on Amazon as a $3.99 ebook and a $12.99 paperback.

It’s also available as a Kobo ebook.

And, of course, you can still get ebook versions through the Archonate Bookstore, where I don’t have to share the proceeds with a corporate giant.

Another F&SF interview

I’ve done another interview with Stephen Mazur on the Fantasy & Science Fiction blog.  It’s about my new series character Baldemar, who appears in “The Prognosticant,” a second story in the current issue.  It also inspired the majorly skookum cover art.

All the Raffalon stories for 99 cents

My collection of the 9 TALES OF RAFFALON is now available at my webstore for the introductory price of 99 cents.  It comes in either mobi or epub formats.

It includes the seven stories that have run in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, plus “Inn of the Seven Blessings” that first appeared in the anthology, ROGUES, plus “Sternutative Sortilege,” an original novelette that’s only in the collection.

I’m offering it at a low price exclusively through the Archonate Bookstore in the hope of building more traffic to my webstore.  After the introductory period, I’ll raise the ebook price to my normal $3.99 and I’ll put out a POD paperback via CreateSpace for $12.99.

If you’re picking up a copy, please take a moment to sign up for my newsletter.  There’s a form at the top of the webstore page.
