I believe I have stated elsewhere my belief that William Browning Spencer is an amazing writer. In this his newest collection "The Unorthodox Dr. Draper and Other Stories", the publisher has chosen the perfect title as that story (the last in this collection), in my humble opinion, is the finest...

Spencer turns out yet another collection of stories that simultaneously move, amuse, and surprise the reader. Here his tales undermine narrative expectations repeatedly, yet still manage to satisfy. Most were published in some Subterranean Press publication or another, whether a magazine or antho...

Review of THE UNORTHODOX DR. DRAPER AND OTHER STORIES by William Browning Spencer Irony is the key here, irony and Lovecraft. Think those two themes don't work well together? Try this collection of stories (and a delightful Lovecraftian poem). These aren't usually laugh-out-loud humour, but they ar...

William Browning Spencer is one of my favorite living writers, and I get a new collection from him altogether too seldom, so each new one is an exciting present when it arrives, this one perhaps more so than any other, since I already knew that it contained two of his best stories, "Penguins of t...

This was a strange book. Very engaging, hard to put down, but strange. While most of the stories had elements of horror or science-fiction in them, I would not have labelled it as either genre. They were creepy, though, and would make for a good segue for someone who is interested in trying horro...

Wonderful collection of stories If you don't seem out Spencer's stories you are missing great treasures. He sees thru different eyes and allows us to look over his shoulder. Before the first tale, his author's note had me laughing and already knowing I would love this book too! Very much a modern da...

Truthfully, I think Spencer is a talented writer. His writing style is poetic without being too much so, offering a stylistic picture of the horror/humor stories he writes. The tales in The Unorthodox Dr. Draper and Other Stories were often cerebral, with good twists and an element of psychologic...

Mr. Spencer's output is not large, so whenever he publishes a novel or collection, it's cause for great celebration, especially when the stories are as eerie, dark, disturbing and wonderful as these. I have yet to read anything by this author that I didn't love, and that streak continues with The...
