(? - ) Chinese author, possibly pseudonymous, whose only publishing credits are with Hong Kong firms in 1959-1960. Alice in Manialand (1959 chap) makes use of conspicuously coded language [for Aesopian Fantasy and Wonderland see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below] to create a Dystopian Parody of Communist China. Life in Manialand is insanely bureaucratized, peopled by slaves, governed by doubletalking hypocrites. The tale may have been published in Chinese as Ailisi Manyou Fengkuang Guodo, but has not been traced. [JC]
