You can write to me at While I read, and appreciate, every fan letter I get, I don’t always have time to respond, so please don’t be offended if you don’t hear back from me. If you are writing to me with a special request, please check the list below, first.

If you want me to blurb your soon-to-be-published novel — Please do not contact me directly to solicit a blurb. Have your editor send a galley or review copy to Matt Ruff c/o Jennifer Brehl, HarperCollinsPublishers, 195 Broadway, New York, NY 10007.

If you are inviting me to appear at a convention, conference, or other public event — I live in Seattle, Washington. If your event is taking place in another city, please make clear in your invitation whether you are offering to cover my travel and hotel expenses. If you intend to compensate me for my time with an honorarium or fee, please mention that too.

If you want to buy a signed copy of one of my books — If you’d like to buy a signed copy of one of my in-print books, you can contact Secret Garden Bookshop in Seattle at 206-789-5006 or via email. Tell them what you want and they’ll order it, get me to sign it, and ship it to you, usually within a few days.

If you’d like to buy a signed first edition hardcover of The Mirage, Set This House in Order, or Sewer, Gas & Electric email me here and I’ll tell you what to do. At the present time, I do not have any first edition copies of my other novels that I am willing to part with.
