Goodreads Author


Member Since
October 2012

Spencer has written for a wide variety of publications including Hustler, Mojo, Erotic Review, Vox, Headpress, Hip Hop Connection and the NME. He is the author of Wormwood Star, a biography of the American artist and occult icon Marjorie Cameron (Mandrake of Oxford). His debut novella, Zoning, is published by Beatdom Books. His interviews with literary legends William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Paul Bowles and Herbert Huncke feature in Joe Ambrose's book Chelsea Hotel Manhattan. His latest work, Out There, is a biography of Burt Shonberg, L.A.'s greatest lost artist/muralist.

"Spencer Kansa has time traveled. Knowing Burt as well as I did, it really does feel, from his assessments and descriptions, that Spencer actually knew him as well, and Burt for sure would have dug him. They would have had a good time. I can see Burt smiling. I'm serious."

Hampton Fancher, screenwriter, Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049.
