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.
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
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.
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.

Last month, I did a pretty lengthy audio interview with Douglas Coleman, who hosts a chat show out of Last Vegas. We talked about What the Wind Brings and, if I remember right, Barbarians of the Beyond. https://youtu.be/cvZhfDq8BFA
I’ve brought back old Luff Imbry, my far-future master criminal, and I’m 4400 words into his latest adventure. Imbry has adopted a false identity, but the name he has chosen belonged to an embezzler for whom there is a 10 million SDU reward. I’m interested to see what happens next.
