My Work


W. A. “Andy” Hughes has written numerous essays, reviews, short stories and humorous top ten lists for various folks around the web and in print. He’s been featured in blogs, online magazines, and the official publication of the American College of Chest Physicians (yes, really).

If you’ve already checked out these links and are interested in seeing more of my work, please email me at Remember to check back here often: this page will (hopefully) be updated as I get the chance to write more stuff!
