About Adam

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.
