This was originally a comment posted to a community, but it occurred to me that some of you might find interest in the post as well. Apologies to those that will get the double-post!

Below the cut are a list of disability-related resources, from awesome activist blogs to fiction and non-fiction bibliographies, as well as two fanfic recs (both Supernatural) and links to two themed databases.

My favourite disability-related blogs are FWD/Foward, or Feminists With Disabilities for a way Forward and Dreamwidth’s Access Fandom, which often does great link roundups. Check FWD blogroll for further reading. Screw Bronze’s Elizabeth McClung is particularly eloquent.

For all of your science fiction needs:
Decloaking Disability Bibliography: http://www.panix.com/~kestrell/DecloakingDisabilityBiblio.html
(various media listed, some academic articles at the bottom)

[livejournal.com profile] not_refined’s Somersault ‘verse with podfic here, read by the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] juice817.
I cannot rec this fic hard enough. It’s a wonderful portrayal of brain injury which acknowledges the difficulties and interpersonal-tension of acquired brain injury for both the PWD and those close to them without turning it into an overwrought tragedy or an inspirational story about overcoming the odds. Wincest, probably rated PG-13 or R.

[livejournal.com profile] wave_obscura writes a variety of disability-theme stories. My favourite is her current project, Because of Houdini, which features Dean as his usual badass self while also living with cystic fibrosis.

Two disability fic databases:

Aaaaaand finally, non-fiction books. This is dreamwidth user trouble’s recommended reading list. http://trouble.dreamwidth.org/529407.html

Thank you for all these links! I know very little about disability studies, but I've been reading some things lately (mostly criticism of Glee), and it is definitely a subject about which I'd like to educate myself. So this is great.

And just a heads up - your coding got a little messed up somewhere.

There are some good 101 resources in the blogroll and probably more in the books section, though frankly I just stumbled in and learned as I read, with a certain lived foundation under my belt. I'm really glad someone is going to get something out of this post!

Bwar, I thought I'd proofread that. Thanks for the heads up.

ps Even if you don't do Wincest, read the Somersault 'verse anyway. It's that good.
