International Kittens of Mystery

SFWA Book Review

Another good one - this time a recommendation from Michael H. Payne at the SFWA Book Review.

RESONANCE by Chris Dolley

The last few years have seen a nice spate of fiction books with autistic or semi-autistic main characters: Elizabeth Moon's The Speed of Dark, Steve Martin's The Pleasure of My Company, Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, et cetera. This one started out making me think it was another of this sort, but then it blossomed off in its own fine direction and did things I wasn't expecting at all. Read other folks' reviews if you want spoilers, but I say: just get it and read it.
