Hong Kong science fiction giant Ni Kuang passed away today (July 3) at the age of 87.

Ni Kuang was born in an intellectual family in Shanghai. At the age of 16, in pursuit of the "Utopian ideal", he dropped out of school to apply for the East China People's Revolutionary University. After 3 months of training, he became a "police police officer". .

In 1955, Ni Kuang smuggled to Hong Kong and started his writing career. He published his first novel "Buried Alive". After that, he continued to write and write 10,000 characters a day, creating the popular "Wesleyan" series.


Ni Kuang, regarded as an anti-Communist writer, once stated that he did not believe in "one country, two systems". In an interview in recent years, he was also pessimistic about the future of Hong Kong.


"Chasing the Dragon" prophecy come true?

Ni Kuang is purely coincidental

In 1983, Ni Kuang serialized the novel "Chasing the Dragon" in the newspaper, in which he "prophesied" that a large city in the East would be destroyed: "To destroy a large city, it may not necessarily be natural disasters, but also man-made disasters. Man-made disasters are not necessarily wars. A few words, the ignorant actions of a few people, can make a big city completely dead. Without destroying the buildings of the big city, without killing any of its inhabitants, even on the surface, the big city is the same as before. , but as long as the original virtues of the city disappear, it can be destroyed and killed.”

Ni Kuang once admitted that the "big eastern city" in the novel is Hong Kong, and believes that the advantage of the disappearance of Hong Kong is "freedom". "The main thing is freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is the mother of all freedoms. Without freedom of speech, there is no other freedom."

In 2019, the anti-revision turmoil broke out, and "Chasing the Dragon" was described as "a prophecy of a political god". When Ni Kuang attended the Hong Kong Book Fair in the same year, when asked if the prophecy of the novel came true, he laughed and said that his idea was just wild, and the realization of the prophecy was purely coincidental. , with no predictive power.

Ni Kuang was awarded the "Lifetime Achievement Award" at the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards in 2012.

"I don't believe in one country, two systems"

Ni Kuang was also known for his "anti-communism" throughout his life. He once said that he "doesn't believe in "one country, two systems" at all, believing that "the Communist Party has the final say."

In 2019, Ni Kuang was interviewed by the Hong Kong and Taiwan program "Sounding Talk", recalling that Xu Jiatun, the then director of the Hong Kong branch of Xinhua News Agency before the handover, had hoped to invite him to go for a walk in the Mainland. Ni Kuang said that he could organize a group called "Anti-Communist Writers Returning Mission" , and then there is no following.

Ni Kuang, Jin Yong, Huang Fei and Cai Lan are also known as the "Four Talents in Hong Kong". He said that Jin Yong was the only one, and he said that he had a very light view of life. After coming to Hong Kong back then, he was free and unfettered. The days of planting have been very satisfied, and now it has been "lucky picked up" for more than 60 years.

Talking about the future of Hong Kong, Ni Kuang said in the interview that he is not qualified to persuade young people, because his thoughts are too negative, the situation in Hong Kong is "irreversible", and Hong Kong's role in the mainland has become less and less.
