I’ve been on a journey of rediscovery since I found out I’m autistic. Armed with the knowledge that I’m not as alone as I felt, I’ve been trying to learn more about myself and how my mind works. Through this, I’ve come across some excellent SFF books that are either written by autistic authors or feature autistic characters. I believe that reading is one of the most powerful methods of building empathy and, as it is Autism Acceptance Month, I would like to share (in no particular order) a list of recommended SFF reads with you.
The Poppy War is a classic underdog story, but with a brutal and very dark twist. A good read, and one that sets the stage for future installments in the series.
