Ordered from a wide array of items, received t-shirts and books promptly. Was thrilled to get a special postcard and bookmark, I am using both proudly as I read my books. It’s a very nice personal touch. Proudly wear my two OEB t-shirts, get many compliments, and I refer them to the sistahscifi site. Had an issue with ordering an item later, sistahscifi reached out to me and made it possible for me to complete another order! I appreciate the really professional and pleasant customer service! Will share site info with others, and shop again!
I need more from Afia Atakora. I was bereft when I finished the book.. I absolutely was not ready for it to end. I loved the characters.. their personalities, and their agencies, they were so real. And she made everything sound so lush. But the book was more than entertaining.. it made me think, I'm still thinking about it... I'm still asking myself what freedom actually means. So very much worth the read.
I picked this book up for our son and he was so immersed. It was great re-telling/reclamation. Highly recommend. (He's 7, we read this together and he could easily navigate/understand for anyone needing age reference).

I love my lucky penny necklace. Every time I touch it I remember to be determined and keep fighting.
One of the standards of vampire fiction. It’s a crime it hasn’t already been adapted into a pop culture tv sensation.
The Gilda Stories span across three different centuries, showcasing little moments of the stories and safe spaces of its cast of black and queer characters.
It is disheartening that a book so cherished as a black lesbian classic from the 1990s was not on my radar at all. I only learned about it from looking at the book selections from black-owned bookstores, when it really should also be brought up in literary circles and supernatural fiction enclaves.
10/10 recommend, especially in conjunction with reading The Vampyre, Dracula, Carmilla, and other classic vampire works.
Great book, fast paced page turner.
I love the feel of the shirt, almost like my own skin. Love it so much I will order another one again.
Loved the ebook and wanted to get a hardcover cover. I saw sistah sci-fi had it and signed! Order came fast and customer service is great. Will definitely be ordering from them if i can from now on.
From swapping out a mistake on my part, great books that come super speedy and the nicest notes in a purchase makes me a dedicated customer and cheerleader.
Just about half-way through the first in the duology and thoroughly enjoying it! Great escape from the day and work, love science fiction in that way. LOVE NK JEMISIN and want to read all her books!!!
I found this to be the most gripping story arc of the entire Patternist series. I could only put the book down when I had to, because I was always dying to know what happened next! The plot is pretty different from the rest of the series, but it does provide some background info. My order arrived fast!
I love this shirt. The sizing chart was accurate for me, the fabric is comfortable, and I'm glad I get to support this bookstore. Thanks so much!
I love wearing this shirt! An unmelinated person in my swim class asked me if I was wearing the names of my grandchildren. I was able to have a ten minute conversation about Black women science fiction authors. Knowledge dispensed. ✅
