Now playing: The epic comedic history of science fiction: Amazing Struggles, Astonishing Failures & Disappointing Success!

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.
