Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Bookstore San Francisco 2003 -
In certain circles, finding that out-of-print copy of Roger Zelazny's Creatures of Light and Darkness or H.P. Lovecraft's The Outsider and Others is an event worthy of wild celebration. While few understand this mania, Borderlands does. Most bookstores relegate fantasy, horror, and sci-fi writings to the lonely aisle or dusty corner, but Borderlands has devoted its entire store to the genres. Lovingly presented -- complete with staff recommendations, awards, and summaries -- all titles are organized by author, with used mass-market novels on separate shelves. A knowledgeable and passionate staff, along with a couple of comfy couches, makes Borderlands the ideal place to while away a day with the stars as your final destination.
