The two books I bought arrived quickly and were packaged with care. My friend loved her gifts!!
I purchased a mask, book, & tote bag for my Mother-in-law, and she loved her items!
They were shipped quickly, and the updates were very professional as well. Will definitely support by making another purchase, and referring this site to my friends. Thank you!!
The design is impeccable - but I knew that going in. I really love the soft feel of the shirt and the fit is exactly what I wanted: relaxed, comfy, and with great draping. Definitely recommend!
It inspires me. It fits well. I’d advice ordering the bigger size if you’re waivering. I love this whole shop and it’s mission. Isis is dope! #SistahSciFi
Love Octavia Butler. Getting this hardcover in the mail was like the Christmas gift I didn't know I needed. This book was wrapped well and the bookmark and note was a nice touch. Thank you so much.
Everyone should read this novel. It can be seen as a cautionary tale of how not to neglect one's talent or one's loved ones. Funny how 2030 seemed so far away but now it's not. Funny how her words are so relevant long after she wrote this novel. She was truly one of the talented tenth.

The recipients loved them!
Compelling characters, exciting twists and turns, intricate world building - all around, a great read.
Loving this anthology! Great read!
I never thought of a graphic novel of her works. Now I wish more of her stories where in graphic novels. Excellent for anyone new to her work and a absolute joy for those familiar with her work
We choose books to read as a family at night (mainly scifi) and this book has been amazing. We look forward to snuggling in and listening to what happens next an Amari's journey. 100% Would recommend.
I love the fabric and the fit of this tee along with the relevance of these powers authors named in the same space.
LaGuardia Volume 1
Set intimately in the Anacostia neighborhood of D.C. and always acknowledging all those who have ever lived on and by and with that land, this magical realist novel features a multiracial and multigenerational cast of characters, in various stages of life and/or death, and is also about family, about the ripple effects of trauma and loss, about trying to cope with the unfathomable that is also the everyday, about various senses of seeing and knowing, and about how folks in community affect and help each other. It's about environmental justice, about racism, about lynching, about war, about the proliferating damage of the sexual violence wrought on one boy by one Catholic priest. It feels all-encompassing. Meanwhile, Yejide's facility with language is incredible. I cannot highly enough recommend it.
Octavia Butler is one of my favorite authors and this was a title I didn't have. I was thrilled to discover Sistah Scifi and the purchase and delivery went seamlessly.
