BRETT RUTHERFORD, born in Southwestern Pennsylvania amid coke ovens and coal mines, spent most of his adult years in New York City and Providence, Rhode Island, where he worked as a journalist, freelance writer, consultant and teacher. In 2016, retiring from work at University of Rhode Island, he moved to Pittsburgh, PA. He is the author of three plays, two novels, and seventeen volumes of poetry. Much of his work centers around myth and the supernatural, and his collected supernatural poems are all gathered in Whippoorwill Road (Fifth edition, 2012). His annotated edition of Matthew Gregory Lewis’s landmark collection of Gothic poems, Tales of Wonder, was followed by a two-volume anthology, Tales of Terror: The Supernatural Poem Since 1800. He has operated The Poet’s Press, an independent small press, since 1971.
