Happy Autistic Pride Day

Well, it’s almost the end of the day, but I still want to mark the occasion! Here’s wishing you a Happy Autistic Pride day and many advancements in understanding and acceptance in the coming year.

Here are a few posts that have discussed good (or not so good) autism books in the past.

Excerpt from Good Omens

Excerpt from Good Omens

I am currently reading Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's Good Omens. If you've read any Neil Gaiman, you probably know that it is going to be crazy, illogical, colourful, tongue-in-cheek and all rather brilliant. It looks like it was serialized last year on Amazon Prime, though I haven't seen it ...
Autism Awareness During Crisis

Autism Awareness During Crisis

I have been pondering, in the in-between times this month, how to approach my April Autism Awareness blog this year. (See my previous posts below.) This is primarily a book blog, so I normally share fiction or non-fiction books that have an autism-positive viewpoint or are good resources for autistic ...

Excerpt from The Mysterious Affair at Styles

Excerpt from The Mysterious Affair at Styles

I am currently re-reading Dame Agatha Christie's The Mysterious Affair at Styles, the first Hercule Poirot mystery. This was Agatha's first published novel, and received good critical acclaim. She made 25 pounds on the book for the serial rights and wondered whether pursuing writing was worthwhile. It's a long time ...
Autism Acceptance Month

Autism Acceptance Month

I've written a few other blogs on special autism observation days (some links farther down). April is widely known as Autism Awareness Month. The last few weeks, there has been a lot of buzz on groups that I am associated with on the Neurodiversity movement and changing "Autism Awareness" to ...

What is the relationship between Odd Socks Day and Anti-Bullying Week? What does this fashion statement have to do with bullying? We wear odd socks today to express the idea that everyone is different, everyone feels like they are not part of the crowd for some reason, and we all ...

Excerpt from I Can See You

Excerpt from I Can See You

I had a tough time deciding which book to do an excerpt from today! I just finished books 1 and 2 of Michael Leese's Jonathan Roper Investigates series. I quite enjoyed these books, with a team made up of neurotypical police detective Brian Hooley and autistic consultant Johnathan Roper. My excerpt ...
Excerpt from The Life We Bury

Excerpt from The Life We Bury

I mentioned The Life We Bury in my last post, and I had to bring it up again to give you a teaser. I really enjoyed this one. Faintly reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, this well-woven mystery is a pleasure to read. The writer/sleuth has a complex background and ...
