Vincent Czyz (pronounced Chezz) was born in Orange, New Jersey and has since become a world traveler. He is the recipient of the 1994 Faulkner Wisdom Prize for Short Fiction, two fellowships from the NJ Council on the Arts, and the 2011 Capote Fellowship at Rutgers University. His short stories and essays have appeared in New England Review, Shenandoah, AGNI, Boston Review, Tin House, Georgetown Review, Copper Nickel, Tampa Review, the Massachusetts Review, and many other publications.
Vincent’s first novel, THE CHRISTOS MOSAIC (Blank Slate Press, 2015) was a #1 bestseller in Kindle historical thrillers. Robert Price called it “genuine, radical biblical scholarship in a beautifully rendered adventure full of unforgettable characters, set in exotic locales vividly and poetically described.” His short story collection, ADRIFT IN A VANISHING CITY, first released in 1998, was reprinted by Rain Mountain Press in 2015 and received the Eric Hoffer Award for Best in Small Press.
