I mistakenly expected ...

I mistakenly expected they'd all be f/sf and was disappointed in that expectation with several romance/finding the self stories that were fine but not my thing. The best story was by William Alexander, a fantasy about a teen whose chronic pain fuels his magic and who accidentally created a Richard III out of his theater activities-the stakes are just high enough for some tension while allowing the story to focus on the teen's relationship with his powers, his dead grandfather, and his maybe-girlfriend who might or might not be ready for the truth about him. I'll be looking for Alexander's other stuff. The other protagonists have a variety of disabilities, including vision impairment, schizophrenia, an anxiety disorder, and mobility impairments. No disability is "cured," though the girl with the anxiety disorder does beat it back to take part in fighting off a planetary invasion.
