Edward Austin Robertson is fairly new to the literary scene. He was first published in Bareback Magazine in 2007 for his poem "Fearless." Supplication and Masturbation, his polarizing first collection of poems, was published in 2008 by Inverspace Press. After three years on the circuit as touring comedian Bobby Mickey, Robertson decided to take a break from the stage lights and concentrate on his literary pursuits, settling in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Robertson spends his free time playing with his landlord's beagles, working with displaced Tulsa youth and running an online blog. He is thirty years old and loving it. Instant Exchange of Recognition is his second book of poetry.
