Abstract: Taiwanese writer Huang Fan is a renowned name in Taiwanese literature. The short story Lai Suo is probably Huang's work most recognized by Taiwanese readers. It was one of the first stories to transcend the strict political dichotomy by attacking both the ruling Nationalist (KMT) Party and the opposition. The Intelligent Man is an amusing study of how, in a modern society and commercial order, an individual might bring about his own undoing. The Intelligent Man is neither hedonistic nor misogynistic, but is rather a clever critique of both the business and personal adventures of the first generation of Taiwanese businesspeople, mostly men, who flocked to explore manufacturing in mainland China and Southeast Asia in the 1980s. The dystopian Zero, which takes up the majority of Zero and Other Fictions, was Huang's first work of science fiction and received the 1981 United Daily News Literary Prize in the novella category.
