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.
The Worlds of the Ordinarily Fantastic (M, W. F) or the Fantastically Ordinary (T, Th, Sa). Sundays everything is just plain weird.
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:
1988. I read the graphic novel edition of Alan Moore's and Dave Gibbon's Watchmen. That same weekend I read Michael Bishop's novel Philip K. Dick is Dead, Alas.
A minor result is the realization that Richard Nixon was even scarier than I thought. The big outcome is that after two days of furious reading, I am not the same person on Monday as I was on Friday.
2021. My short story collection The Progressive Apparatus & Other Fantasticals is reviewed in The Toronto Star. A fantastic surprise on any Saturday morning!
It is great to receive this kind of attention and it's fantastic to be mentioned in the same column as Andy (The Martian) Weir's latest book.
2021. A copy of Doomsday Clock, the sort-of-sequel to Watchmen arrives at my doorstep. Not by teleportation or time rift but via delivery truck because it's still COVID season.
Reading very cautiously with a mixed sense of "was this trip really necessary?" and being sometimes impressed with the interpretation. Interested to know if my heart will be broken by the end.
