Hong Kong science fiction writer Ni Kuang dies aged 87

Ni Kuang, a Hong Kong author of novels and screenplays who wrote 300 of them, including The One-Armed Swordsman and The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, has passed away. The local media reported that he died on Sunday at the age of 87.

Ni’s passing was verified to the South China Morning Post by actor and Federation of Hong Kong Filmmaker’s spokesman Tenky Tin Kai-man. Skin cancer was reportedly the reason for death.

The New Adventures Of Wisely series, which was originally published in the Chinese newspaper Ming Pao in 1963, propelled Ni to popularity and earned him the title of a giant in the Chinese literary world. He specialized in science fiction, wuxia, and martial arts.

Ni had four brothers and two sisters: Ni Yifang (倪亦方), Ni Yixiu (倪亦秀), Ni Yijian (倪亦儉), Ni Yiping (倪亦平), Ni Yishu (倪亦舒) and Ni Yijing (倪亦靖).

Ni Kuang Career, What was his profession?

He was assigned to write death sentences while serving as a public security official for the Inner Mongolian Communist Party (CCP) government in the 1950s. He once questioned the head of the neighborhood party about why a certain man was given the death penalty since his crime was merely being a landlord, according to the official charges.

In most of Ni’s science fiction works, extraterrestrial life serves as a deus ex machina to explain the illogical and inexplicable, taking the form of detective/mystery stories. His best-known works are Dr. Yuen (Yuen Chun-hap) and Wisely Series (Wai See-lei) novel series, both of which have been made into movies and television shows. In several of these writings, his critique of communism is clear.

For the Shaw Brothers Studio, Ni also co-wrote the scripts for the movies One-Armed Swordsman, The Assassin, and Crippled Avengers with Chang Cheh. He did not earn credit for developing Chen Zhen, the lead character portrayed by Bruce Lee in the 1972 movie Fist of Fury. Author Lo Wei was listed in the credits. As the subject of countless Fist of Fury remakes and adaptations, Chen Zhen rose to fame as a hero in popular Chinese culture. After Bruce Lee, renowned performers like Jet Li and Donnie Yen portrayed Chen Zhen in movies. For Inframan, China’s first superhero movie, Ni penned the screenplay.

When Ni learned that the British intended to hand over control of Hong Kong to the Chinese government in 1992, he immigrated to the United States and resumed his literary career there. He did, however, return to Hong Kong in 2006 as a result of his wife’s inability to adapt to American culture.
