From the Author:

Tells Chilling Tale of What Might Come.

In a near future, amid growing hostilities between the USA and China, the new scifi novel The Repatriation of Henry Chin sees a paranoid president decide that the best course of action to deal with "potential" domestic terrorists is to secure Chinese-Americans in specially built facilities for their "safety." Mild-mannered pharmacist Henry Chin finds his life turned upside down as American turns on American.

Unwilling to submit to such a draconian security policy, Chin flees with his teen-age daughter across a nightmare America where neighbor has turned against neighbor. Now doggedly pursued by an ICE agent determined to bring this "potential future terrorist" in no matter the cost, Chin struggles to survive in a country where once cherished rights and liberties have been traded for a peace and security that is anything but.

The Repatriation of Henry Chin is the debut novel for Isaac Ho, SF Weekly Black Box Award-winning playwright of Along for the Ride and Stephen N. Gershenson Screenwriting Award-winning writer of 1,001 Ways to Enjoy the Missionary Position, a feature-film starring Amanda Plummer.

The idea for the novel came to Ho after seeing the breathless ease of numerous opinion wielders -- many of them Asian American -- invoke the idea of internment camps to deal with many of the issues of security facing our country.

"Did we learn nothing from the 1940s," says Ho, referring to the camps created to house the Japanese during World War II and the suspicion German-Americans also had to endure. "We live in a world that is far too complex to be reduced to talking head sound bites and simple solutions to complex problems. Repatriation offers one alternative view of the consequences of sound bite solutions."

"Isaac tells an important story, a cautionary tale we all need to keep in mind," says Digital Fabulists' co-publisher Jody Wheeler. "Not only is The Repatriation of Henry Chin an excellent debut novel, it's also a thrilling read and, in the tradition of good science fiction, makes you pause and think as well."

Isaac Ho is a graduate of the UCLA MFA Screenwriting program.  He is the screenwriter for the indie film 1,001 Ways to Enjoy the Missionary Position, an Orwellian drama starring Amanda Plummer, and the play Along for the Ride. He's won the SF Weekly Black Box Award for Best Play, the Stephen N. Gershenson Screenwriting Award and was a finalist for the CAPE USA New Writers Award for Television. The Repatriation of Henry Chin is his first novel.
