Ye Yonglie

Ye Yonglie (Chinese: 叶永烈; pinyin: Yè Yǒngliè, 30 August 1940[1] – 15 May 2020[2]) was a Chinese writer of science fiction and biographies. A few of his stories have been translated into English in The Road to Science Fiction series and elsewhere. During the "Anti-Spiritual Pollution Campaign" his works were attacked and a story he wrote in 1985 was suppressed for suggesting AIDS had entered the country.[3] As a biographer he wrote on early figures in the People's Republic of China. He also visited North Korea, and wrote a book The Real DPRK (真实的朝鲜) which was banned in that country and China.[4][5]
