Vourvoulias, Sabrina

(1960-    ) Thai-born author, an American citizen from birth brought up in Guatemala and in USA from the age of fifteen; she began to publish work of genre interest with "Flying with the Dead" in Crossed Genres: Year Two (anth 2010) edited by Kay T Holt, Kelly Jennings and Bart R Leib. Her first novel, Ink (2012), which is set in the very Near Future, dramatizes the global refugee crisis increasingly central to the early twenty-first century world as immigrants to America are forcibly tattooed with biometric tags, effectively creating an apartheid society (see Imperialism; Race in SF); the narrative itself complexly mixes (see Equipoise) elements from fantasy, Magic Realism and sf.
