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.

Barbarians of the Beyond ARC s

I’ve received a typeset of Barbarians of the Beyond, the authorized sequel to Jack Vance’s The Demon Princes quintilogy. I’m going to get ARCs made up and send them out for blurbs and word-of-mouth buzz-creation.

I think this is going to be an event in the SFosphere.

More to come.

20 per cent discount on What The Wind Brings

My publisher, Pulp Literature Press, is offering a 20 per cent discount on my magnum opus, What The Wind Brings, if you buy direct from the PLP store.

When you get to the checkout, enter this discount code:  XMAS2020

WTWB, a historical novel with magical realism elements, is in my qualified opinion, the best work I’ve ever done.  It’s the book that gestated in the back of my head for more than forty years, the book I want to be remembered for.

Luff Imbry novelette finished

I’ve finished “Arboghasz Dal Axander Rides Again,” an 11.8k-word novelette that brings back my corpulent, far-future master criminal, Luff Imbry, and sent it to Lightspeed magazine.

Next, I think I’ll do a short Baldemar piece and send it to Ed Willett, who will launch a Kickstarter campaign in January to publish a collection of stories by authors who have been interviewed for his podcast, Shapers of Worlds.

New Luff Imbry novelette

At 11,000 words, I’ve finished the first draft of a new Luff Imbry novelette. The working title is “Arboghasz Del Axander Rides Again,” a title that has changed several times because that unusual name has altered as I’ve been writing.

Now I’ll polish it up and look for somewhere to send it. I think Lightspeed will get first refusal.
