Skallagrigg

Cover of the book Skallagrigg

Skallagrigg by William Horwood.

A compelling story about a young girl with severe cerebral palsy who collaborates with a computer programmer to write a wildly popular computer game while solving a mystery about a young man named Arthur. One of the many fascinating aspects of this story is that it was written in 1987, before so much of the technology that we now take for granted. Nonetheless, it foretells the power of computers, e-mail and the Internet for individuals with severe disabilities. This book is out-of-print in the United States, but available in England.
