08:17 pm - So badly read ...
Abe books have put up a list of books where mental illness is depicted: http://www.abebooks.com/books/bell-jar-schizophrenia-depression-novel/mental-illness-fiction.shtml?cm_mmc=nl-_-nl-_-110601-h00-illnessCA-_-02book#row1.


I am horrified how few of these I have read. Where do I start? Your definition of speculative fiction probably will vary from mine (and also your definition of mental illness), but if any of the list is, to your mind, sf worth reading, please could you comment?

One book which I think _is_ sf with depiction of mental illness, and which is missing is Sara Water's
Affinity
. Checking that I'd remembered the title correctly, I came across Mind's listing: http://www.mind.org.uk/blog/4902_a_novel_take_on_mental_health_issues I was surprised by a reader's comment that Affinity is 'not really about mental illness'.
