Ten Half-Pennies

Published Oct 1, 2019 · 7,499 words (28 minutes) · 5 likes · 336 views

Fantasy Baldemar wizard Dying Earth

Baldemar’s path to becoming a wizard’s henchman was not exactly linear, but it was inevitable from the day he hired a local tough to help fend off grammar school bullies. Luckily, Baldemar is a fast learner⁠—and he never forgets his debts.

Matthew Hughes’s path as a writer has taken him from journalism to speechwriting to SFF and suspense fiction. Born in Liverpool, he’s been in Canada for sixty-five years, and has been shortlisted for the Nebula, Aurora, Philip K. Dick awards, and many others.

The Sword of Destiny

Published Aug 2, 2019 · 10,471 words (39 minutes) · 2 likes · 256 views

Fantasy Baldemar wizard

“The Sword of Destiny” was written at the invitation of Gardner Dozois for his 2017 anthology, The Book of Swords. This 10,000-word novelette introduced Baldemar, the wizard’s henchman, at the (probable) end of his career. I later wrote several more stories bringing him from childhood to maturity, all of which have run (or will run) in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.
