Free Fiction Friday: Matthew Hughes

The other day, I linked to some of the free fiction here on the F&SF website. Well, it occurred to me that there’s lots of other free fiction on the net elsewhere, much of which originally appeared in F&SF. So I’ll make an effort to post links to such pieces now and then, when I come across them.

So the first piece of fiction I wanted to direct you to is by one of our most prolific contributors of recent years: Matthew Hughes. Hughes burst onto the F&SF scene a few years ago with the publication of his story "Mastermindless," which features Old Earth’s foremost freelance discriminator, Henghis Hapthorn. Hughes went on to write several more stories about Hapthorn, and is currently writing the final book in his Henghis Hapthorn trilogy for Night Shade Books.

Hughes also wrote a series of stories about Guth Bandar, an explorer of humanity’s collective unconscious–the noosphere. The first of those stories, "A Little Learning," appears in its entirety on Hughes’s website.

    Lower link leads to the same earlier post here, and not Hughes’ website.

    We do a Friday Free Fiction post every week at Futurismic, by the way – just drop me a line if you want anything included! :)
