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 Worlds of the Ordinarily Fantastic (M, W. F) or the Fantastically Ordinary (T, Th, Sa).  Sundays everything is just plain weird.

Birthday of my father, John Francis Theodore Spencer who left us back in 2010. I will always respect his dedication to science and education. Plus his sometimes weird sense of humour and the fact that he was the best bed-time story teller in the World!

Release date of my new short story collection The Progressive Appartus & More Fantasticals from Brain Lag Publishing. You can order your copy now at the link below:

February

Launch party for The Progressive Apparatus & Other Fantasticals at 18:00 - 19:00 Eastern Time.

Join me and Brain Lag owner Catherine Fitzsimmons to virtually celebrate the release of my new collection!  Jump in the chat to ask your questions and find out more about these bizarre short stories. BYOB, but pants not required.

Opening of The Great Exhibition of 1851 in Kensington, London. Housed in the fantastic Crystal Palace, it featured over 14,000 displays from around the World, including some of the first re-creations of dinosaurs (and they look very odd indeed!). The Great Exhibition exceeded its attendance projections, mostly because of the  unexpected and passionate interest of working class visitors.
