Hmm. Leslie Cheung killed himself last Tuesday. Flung himself from his hotel room. Left a note. Emotional problems. It happened on April Fools’, so I waited a while before I believed it, but it’s all over the news now, so… *sigh*. I only really know him from the films of Wong Kar-wai (he was Tony Leung’s boyfriend in Happy Together and the main star of Days of Being Wild) and his starring role in A Better Tomorrow (though it launched Chow Yun-Fat’s career into the stratosphere, Leung was the main character). He was 46, but didn’t look it, as most of us Asians don’t when we get to that age.
And shucks, Richard Kadrey’s Nanotales are now monthly instead of weekly.
