Poet Adam Ford stands at a lectern before a microphone, wearing a pork pie hat, with a picture of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom on the wall in the background. Ford's mouth is open slightly, as though he were speaking. Which he probably is. Photo by Jess Saunders.

Adam Ford (that’s me) is the author of the poetry collections The Third Fruit is a Bird (Picaro Press, 2008) and Not Quite the Man for the Job (Allen & Unwin, 1998). I also wrote a novel called Man Bites Dog (Allen & Unwin, 2004) and a short story collection called Heroes and Civilians (self-published, 2011).

My current writing project is POEM: SPACEKNIGHT, a 79-poem sequence, posted one poem a day for 79 days, based on a 1980s comic about cyborgs fighting aliens.

    If you’re thinking about publishing POEM: Spaceknight as a complete work, I’d love to get a copy to present to my brother, Bill Mantlo! I believe he would thoroughly enjoy this! Thank you for your passion for ROM! –Mike Mantlo
