Looking for suggestions

glasses, curious, cap, siamese
Once again I come asking for help.

Can anyone suggest good (as in informative/reliable/well written) books about albinism?

I'm looking for non-fiction (real-life stories, guides for parents and so on) and also for fiction (any genre, but fantasy/sf suggestions are very much appreciated).

I'm aware of the evil albino trope (one more reason to loathe the Da Vinci Code for bringing it at the forefront again), and, for fiction, I'm looking for books in which the person with albinism is either the hero/hera or 'just a normal guy', at the moment only Akata Witch and Elric of Melniboné come to mind (although I'm in serious doubt that a drug-dependent anti-hero with a soul-eating sword really fits the bill).

As aslways, thank you!

There was an albino in the Princess Bride, but I have only the haziest recollection of what part he played.

Thank you, Ellen! that's something to start from. :)

Oh!Looks like 'The Albino' (no name given) is the assistant torturer...
