Like half of the internet, we were inspired by the quintessential Name List shirt. Designed by a Experimental Jetset  from the Netherlands for a Japanese firm, the shirt became an international hit. Expermental Jetset's idea was to strip down the idea of a rock band to a list of four names, in an attempt to reach the 'essence' of a group.

With the Sistah Scifi Author List shirt, we wanted to celebrate black female writers who create a future where all of us are included. We wanted to celebrate ourselves as readers would instantly recognize the names on the list and what they mean. We also wanted to celebrate the fact that dozens, if not hundreds, more names could be added to this shirt.

Highlighted Authors: Octavia E Butler, Nnedi Okorafor, Tomi Adeyemi, Nalo Hopkinson, and Nisi Shawl , NK Jemisin.

Great fit, great feel, great look!

I’ve washed and worn the author names shirt a couple times now, and absolutely love it—it’s a pleasure to get to rep these amazing authors! Great fit, and the fabric is super comfortable, soft, and sturdy. The shipment itself arrived quickly and the customer service was wonderfully personable. Already planning to buy a couple more as gifts for friends!

Love it!

Fast shipping. Super cool product!

Awesome shirt!

I love my authors list shirt! I had to get a size larger than I usually wear, since my size was sold out, and I thought I’d use the shirt as a sleep shirt. However, I’ve been wearing it around the house and going over to my sister’s for dinner because it’s just so comfy (and it has my favorite authors on it!)

For the culture ✊🏾🖖🏾

Proud to wear a shirt with my favorite Black sci-fi authors. I need to get another shirt. I put on the quarantine 15. Need to go a size up.

Love my shirt!

This may be my favorite t-shirt now. Some of my top authors. Seeing the shirt reminds me of their books and I love that.
