About K. A. Cook

K. A. Cook is a panalterous, aro-ace, genderless, autistic feminist who experiences chronic pain and mental illness. They write creative non-fiction, personal essays and novels about all of the above on the philosophy that if the universe is going to make life interesting, they might as well make interesting art.

They are the author of several short fantasy stories combining ridiculous magic, cats, disability, bacon, mental illness, microscopic gnomes, aromanticism, the undead, verbose eldritch entities and as many transgender autistics as any one story can hold.

Review by: E Scott on April 14, 2018 :
A short story that is so much more than one autistic apprentice's quest to catch the eye of his mentor. Darius' experience of battling through a crowded marketplace while trying to overcome his aversion to sensory overload (not to mention the uncaring masses) is a well-written insight. Something that your average "similar person" would take in their stride is depicted in all its frightening, overwhelming detail. The knowing eyebrow-raised humour of the fantasy setting does nothing to dimish the exploration of an autistic perspective on love, life, and epic quests.
