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.

A God in Chains Sale Continues

The 99-cent sale of A God in Chains continues.   An outfit called eBookDaily.com sent me an email to let me know the kindle version of my Dying Earth novel is still being offered on Amazon for the bargain price.

Not to be too own-horn-blowing, but AGiC is the first novel-length work I’ve set in my extrapolation of Jack Vance’s The Dying Earth.  Those who liked the stories about Baldemar the wizard’s henchman and Raffalon the thief, all set in that world, might want to return there to see what’s happening.

A God in Chains shortlisted for award

My Dying Earth-set novel, A God in Chains (Edge SF & Fantasy Publishing, 2019), is shortlisted as book of the year in the speculative fiction category for the Alberta Publishing Awards.

It’s a juried award that honors the publisher, not the author, but hey, a drive-by nomination is still pretty skookum.

By the way, the novel, set in the same milieu as the Raffalon and Baldemar stories, has racked up 33 five-star reviews on Amazon since it was released 11 months ago.

You can read the opening here:
