Cult Stories - the strange and unexpected sequel to Amazing Struggles, Astonishing Failures & Disappointing Success! More brilliant performances from San Francisco's Shoestring Radio Theatre!

WELCOME!

I'm absolutely delighted that you're here!

 

Here you get to discover some of my written, drawn, and performed works -- plus get introduced to the people and things I care about. 

 

Some of this stuff is here simply to entertain and edify you but if you want to part with some $, there you are links to purchase Spencer-related books, art, wearables and consumables.  More of the commerce-related content will be coming on line later but there will always be lots of free fun experiences.

I'll be refreshing the content on a regular basis drawing on current projects and my creative archives.

So like I said:  Welcome.

Really.

The official release date of my new novel The Hard Side of the Moon. Watch for notices of celebrations, conversations and who knows? By then...actual face-to-face meetings in Non-Virtual Real Reality!

In the meantime, check out the brilliant cover art reveal from the elite geniuses at Brain Lag Publishing:

2021. Lorna Toolis passes away at the age of 68. Former Chief Librarian of the Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy, she was a titan of Canadian SF.

Thanks to Lorna's vision and tireless efforts, the Merril is a jewel of the Toronto Public Library system and generations of us readers, writers, artists and scholars will remember and love her well past the Year A.D. 802,701!

November

2021. We made our funding target of the Kickstarter campaign to produce a graphic novel version of H.G. Wells' classic When the Sleeper Wakes. 

Thank you to everyone who gave us support! 

Stay tuned to this site for news as the project progresses.

September

2021. Launch party for The Hard Side of the Moon at GenCon. But it's all virtual so you get to attend! Sign up directly via Facebook at the link below. Want to hear me read from my latest novel using my former University FM radio announcer's voice? Want to giggle and guffaw while I struggle to answer awkward questions from the online audience? It will all be happening then and there!
