This month’s current Lamppost Luminary is one of my biggest supporters in, well, life is this amazing lady right here – Zophie. (That is pronounced Sophie, with a Z). We met one fandom-filled day on tumblr, searching for similar pieces as-seen on various T.V. shows. We bonded over Teen Wolf, Marvel, Potter and eveything else. She is an uber talented artist, a fledging fashionista and one of my biggest champions. This blog wouldn’t have come together without her. Her designs brought Not The Path To Narnia to life. She is my girl Friday and also the person behind the graphics of Not The Path To Narnia!

Fantasy And Sci-Fi Books: April Box

The April Box theme is Aliens, Aliens, Aliens. I love a great Aliens story! After all, once you are out in the ‘verse, who isn’t an alien?

For those of you who haven’t heard about Fantasy and Sci-Fi Book subscription box, it is a monthly subscription box that sends a new release YA Sci-fi or Fantasy book with 3 or more related items, some of which are custom made for theme of the month. It is fabulously curated by Theresa and her husband who share our geeky love of the Sci-Fi & Fantasy genre.

Fantasy and SciFi logo
 From Theresa: My Husband and I started this business to share our love of books with the world. While we love many types of books, we have a special place in our heart for anything Fantasy and Science Fiction related. We also love subscription boxes. However, we noticed that some subscription boxes send items that are not worth the money or not useful.We wanted the box we sent to our readers to be special. We wanted the items to be exciting, useful and definitely worth the money.

We carefully pick the book. We painstakingly pick the items that go with the book. Some items we ship will be specially made just for our readers. Some readers may be hesitant to order a subscription book box because they may not like the genre of book they get their box. We only send Fantasy or Sci-fi books so readers will know EXACTLY what type of book they are getting. However, the reader will still have the surprise of not knowing which book or what awesomely fun items they are receiving.
