First of all, I love Army of One so very much. Thank you. I'm autistic, and science fiction books (and to a lesser extent TV shows) are my THING, so finding something like your poems is pure magic to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Here's my favorite stated fictional autistics:
Marcelo Sandoval, from the book "Marcelo in the Real World" by Francisco X. Stork. My favorite written autistic.

Gary Bell, from the TV show "Alphas". My favorite television autistic. A definite watch.

Some more ambiguously Autistic characters I like:
Abed Nadir from "Community". Community gets props from being created by Dan Harmon, who has Asperger's.
Spencer Ried, Criminal Minds. A bit of a stereotypical television aspie, but lovable and fun to watch.

Hope these are helpful. Ask and I can find more!
*edited, typos.
