Hi, #actuallyautistic author over here!
Kirkus says "Scope is a character of immense depth and originality. There are few protagonists in sci-fi—or literature in general—that present an autistic perspective with such specificity and pathos."

Thanks!


message 7: by Joshua (new)

Joshua I'm autistic as well with several books out in multiple series, if someone can add me to the list it would be appreciated.

message 8: by Marie (new)

Marie Godfrey Pleas add to your books. Mind Tree Author Tito Rajarshi Mukhopadhyay. A miraculous child breaks the silence of autism. Available from the National Autism Society and Arcade Books, NY. www.arcadepub.com ISBN: 978-1-61145-002-6. Includes 2 other books and a book of poems--written when Tito was 8, 11, and older.
This is an excellent book for parents of an autistic child as well as the child himself. Tito uses long words in complex sentences and expresses philosophical thoughts. " 'Can nothing be changed with me?' I ask the clock which tells me stories. But I understand that somethings need waiting. I get ready to wait for the green color of hope which would cover me all through. There may be different colors around me, but the clock told me that everything will be greenish."
Tito's writing is not corrected or edited. It is in United Kingdom English, though; Tito was born in India. I cried when the book was finished and hope to share it with my two autistic grandsons and the rest of their family. Please add this book to your list.

message 9: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Bauer Moojag and the Auticode Secret by N.E. McMorran would be a great book to add!
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
It's a cli-fi/surreal adventure story featuring autistic protagonists trying to save their utopian world from candy-coated villains. It has a lot of heart and a lot of elements that will really resonate with neurodivergent readers.


message 10: by Liz (new)

Liz Hartevelt It would be great if my books are on the list. I'm an autistic New Adult author :-)
