SIMA CHANGFENG, PEN NAME OF HU XINPING (1922—1980). Born in the northeast, Sima Changfeng left the mainland for Hong Kong on the eve of the Communist victory. He worked as an editor and taught literature in colleges and published mostly essays and some short stories from the mid-1950s to the late 1970s. He died in Canada. His early works are reminiscences of his childhood and youth, and in the latter part of his career, he focused on creating belles lettres that appealed to sophisticated sensibilities.
