The author, Kan Yao-Ming, was born in 1972 in Miaoli County, Taiwan. Kan graduated from the Chinese Department of Tunghai University, and obtained his Master's Degree in Creative Writing and English Literature from National Dong Hwa University. He is currently a full-time fictional writer. The book Killing the Ghosts is full of energy with a touch of magical elements. This legendary fable used a language of experimental quality to represent the magnificent post-colonial perspective. Kan’s unique style of writing strengthens his irreplaceable status in the world of literature. The current book illustrates Taiwan’s history of colonization in the past hundred years, and the intercultural scar literature, which portrays the sufferings of intellectuals during the Cultural Revolution. The author incorporates topics of Taiwan's history, national identity, and memories of ethnic groups into the novel, thereby broadening its content. The language used in the book is very diverse, reflecting the unique cultural phenomenon of colonization and fusion of different ethnic groups throughout the history of Taiwan.
