Alex James


Alex James is a writer based in Leeds, United Kingdom, who likes writing allegories of the human condition using science fiction and fantasy. He feels his personal experience of autism makes him suitable, qualified even, to write these types of stories. As a twist on the real difficulties faced by people with autism there are heroic themes in his writing. Strengths and weaknesses are a big part of having autism: those often-intellectual superpowers people with autism are presumed to have and on the other side the difficulties; there is the knowledge and experience of having lived and learned with autism, and also the ignorance of living on the ‘wrong planet’.

His readers are people who want to read something that will make them think or who are looking for something a little different from the usual science fiction and fantasy fare.
