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.

After completing a 58k-word basic draft, the project went on hiatus when the pandemic struck. Now I’m going to return to work on the novel, whose working title is Barbarians of the Beyond. I expect to turn it in in September.
