A rarely used House Name of John Spencer and Co, appearing on the novel Zamba of the Jungle (1951) by Leonard G Fish and on the title story by R L Fanthorpe of Supernatural Stories No. 2: The Incredulist (anth 1954). The latter was issued under Spencer's Badger Books imprint; confusingly, "The Incredulist" is credited on the cover to Fanthorpe's frequent pseudonym Lionel Roberts, while three of the five stories – making up some 80% of the book and including the novelette on which the cover is based – are by John Glasby under different pseudonyms.
This Spencer house name should not be confused with John Raymond the US magazine publisher (see Rocket Stories; Science Fiction Adventures) or John Raymond the pseudonym used by John (Raymond) Brosnan for non-genre novelizations. [DRL]
