Special Needs in Strange Worlds

Over at SF Signal Sarah Chorn made a great list of speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy and horror) that has characters with special needs front and center. I hope Sarah Chorn don't mind me making the list over here. It is not my list, but her list, all credit goes to her.
