The literary offerings of Robin Spriggs have been well received by critics. Publishers Weekly, in its review of The Untold Tales of Ozman Droom, observed, "Spriggs evokes terror and awe," and "Medium is the message in this dazzling anti-story, a love letter to the weird."

Rue Morgue declared The Untold Tales of Ozman Droom "A hard-to-describe yet highly entertaining compilation . . . an experience weird fiction fans should not pass up."

According to Cemetery Dance magazine, "Spriggs displays a wide range of talents in both form and substance. He's equally comfortable in the short story, short-short and novella lengths. His tone varies from the gently whimsical to the truly nasty. He crosses genre lines with ease, showing strength in all forms of the fantastic, from horror to fantasy to science fiction."

His lyrical prose, with its dreamlike and often frightening depiction of reality, has been compared to the work of such writers as Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Walser, Ray Bradbury, Jorge Luis Borges, Robert Aickman, Flannery O'Connor, and Lord Dunsany. Much of Spriggs's work, in fact, falls into the category of prose poetry, prompting thriller author Harry Shannon to refer to him as "a linguistic acrobat who works without a net."

Noted editor and anthologist Ellen Datlow, in volume 3 of her The Best Horror of the Year, wrote: "Diary of a Gentleman Diabolist by Robin Spriggs is a series of well-wrought interconnected prose poems of the ghostly and uncanny." Internationally distributed fan magazine Fangoria referred to the same collection as "a rather ingenious little grimoire charting—in fractured, dreamlike form—the trip of a seeker, someone who dives head first into the fevered realms of black magic and beyond, encountering all manner of arcane horror and supernatural phenomena."

Due to the cult popularity of his aforementioned Dracula Poems, the long out-of-print book often commands inordinately high prices.[2]

As an actor, Spriggs was called "terrific" by Variety magazine [3] for his 2004 performance in Paul Schattel's Sinkhole.[4] He appeared as Captain Franco in the NBC science-fiction series Revolution, created by Eric Kripke and produced by J. J. Abrams, and as Chris Amante in the USA Network drama series Necessary Roughness. He currently portrays Morrison, aka The Ghost, on the second season of PlayStation Network's superhero crime series, Powers.
