I’ve commissioned an expert to analyze the (accidental, and very problematic) ableism in my first novel, The Etiquette of Wolves.
I will publish that treatise here as soon as the project is finished.
In the meantime, I have published a blog post of my own concerning this topic, titled “Writing While Ableist,” which you can read here.
This topic of ableism in fiction and art continues to be one that matters a great deal to me. Subverting ableist stereotypes and tropes in my fiction is work I consider to be an ethical imperative, and future stories will do a much better job of countering ableism in my prose.
