    Friendly, knowledgeable staff, good newsletter and lots of signings/events. Go-to place for speculative fiction of many flavors. Good stop on a bookstores-of-the-mission pilgrimage.

    Great used science fiction finds in the back. Even autographed copies of Orson Scott Card's work.

    Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. I disagree with but understand the expediency of shelving the books by size (!) which makes you possibly miss authors if you don't ask.

    They are really good about trades here. You can leave bags or boxes for buyer or call to check if one is on hand and grab a coffee. Non arbitrary good eye and good credit

    If you're sitting in one of the chairs, you might have a hairless cat jump on your lap because you're warm.
