Blacktober Reads: Stitches with Sylvester Barzey

Blacktober Reads: Stitches with Sylvester Barzey

Audra Russell chats with author Sylvester Barzey.

Sylvester Barzey is a best-selling horror and fantasy author who grew up in Bronx, NY, and was later transplanted to Lawrence, GA. A military veteran with an addiction to all things horror, Sylvester’s goal is to shine a spotlight on BIPOC characters within the horror/fantasy genre. 

We creep between the pages of his short story compilation, Stitches, and talk about the importance of Black representation in horror, how he got into the horror genre, gatekeeping in the traditional publishing industry, and he who shall not be named. LOL!

So grab your favorite beverage, sit back, and enjoy!
