He Xi

Tagged: Author

(1971-    ) Pen-name for an unidentified Chinese author and multiple Yinhe Award-winner, perhaps best known for his reworking of Chinese Mythology in "Ban Gu" (1996 Kehuan Shijie). A student at the Chengdu University of Science and Technology, He enjoyed a flurry of short story publications after his debut "Yiye Fengkuang" ["One Crazy Night"] (1991 venue unknown) before suddenly disappearing from the field for two years in 1997, after his itinerant job in information technology took up too much of his time. He was lured back by the prospect of writing about the likely impact of the Millennium Bug (see Computers) and continued to produce a slow but steady stream of short stories, collected in two books published simultaneously in 2011.
