Creative: A contemporary fantasy novel called Own Worlds which weaves biographical experience of autism with fantastical imaginings. Explores autism as an identity using autistic poetics and neurodiversity as formative guides.
Critical: Investigating the intersection of autism with the rhetoric of the fantastic through close analysis of two screen texts: Blade Runner (1982) and Community (2009-2016). Considers how the Othering of autism with fantastical tropes such as aliens and robots both helps and hinders the cause of neurodiversity. Suggests, therefore, a reconfiguration of the genre's approach to poetics through a recognition of its natural and innate propensity for autistic aesthetic.
