Hughes has sold nineteen novels to publishers large and small in Canada, the US, UK, France, and Italy and eighty-five pieces of short fiction to major mystery and science fiction magazines and to bestselling anthologies.
He has won the Arthur Ellis Award from the Crime Writers of Canada for best story of the year, and has been short-listed for the Aurora, Nebula, Philip K. Dick, Van Vogt, Endeavour, and Derringer Awards.
Booklist has named him the “heir-apparent to [sf grandmaster] Jack Vance,” noted science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer has called him “a towering talent,” and George R.R. Martin recently called him “criminally underrated.”
Hughes will talk about the essentials of writing genre fiction and the realities of selling fiction in the modern publishing scene.
