    We buy books everywhere all the time but we found treasures here that are not everywhere and I can’t wait to go back to hunt for more treasures! They have independent and small press & amazing finds!

    A science fiction reader's delight.

    Sweet spot for sci fi and horror books. Because sometimes you still need a physical book for effect.

    Cute cafe attached to the bookstore, which is all sci fi in case you missed that in the description. No wifi on weekends.

    While anyone can shop there or take in their author events, sponsors get all sorts of benefits, including free movie passes, table reservations at their neighboring cafe, and even package acceptance. Read more

    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.

    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.
