  • The Ocean and All Its Devices
    Spencer includes an insightful introduction on the importance of fiction that the contents of his book bear out magnificently.
  • The Unorthodox Dr. Draper and Other Stories
    Lovecraft aficionado Spencer collects nine reprints and a poem that will appeal to those who like their horror with a literary flair.
  • The Return of Count Electric, and Other Stories
    Spencer likes to give a nod to other writers: ``Snow'' is a modern version of Somerset Maugham's ``Rain;'' the eerie ``A Child's Christmas in Florida'' is like nothing Dylan Thomas would have imagined.

  • Black Wings: New Tales of Lovecraftian Horror
