Speculative fiction books with disabled characters: by series

I’ve been compiling a list of speculative fiction books with disabled characters; a HUGE thank you to everyone who has contributed thus far!

I would really appreciate help in improving this list: adding books, filling in blanks and so on. Feel free to comment on this post, tweet at Dark Matter Zine or email me. My goal is to find at least 1000 books in the speculative fiction genre with disabled characters. One of my academic supervisors and I are collaborating on a paper, and building this list is the first step.

Please note: inclusion in this list is not a reflection or comment on the nature or quality of the work or the representation. This list is an attempt to be exhaustive.

FAQ: if a human disability, for example, being of short stature, features in a book where, like Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, he’s the only one so he has barriers to participation, then someone being called a ‘dwarf’ counts for this list. However, where there is a race of dwarfs and society has developed to accommodate people of short stature, I would not include those in my list.

    1. Albinism of itself is not a disability but different people have different degrees of albinism. I have albinism, which has CAUSED my disability: that of vision impairment.

      Yesterday I heard a seminar by Dr Kate Holland, an expert in Mad Studies, who differentiates between Mad Studies and Disability; others would conflate the two. I want to loosely include mental illness under disability for the purpose of this list because it fits within legislation (e.g. the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Australian Disability Discrimination Act (1992) ). Also because mental illness is often treated like a disability in terms of ‘othering’ within stories. I need to emphasise that depression appears in degrees and would frequently not be classified as a disability under this legislation.
