    Default who is the best wuxia writer?

    Jin Yong wrote the least books but concentrate on historical background, Gu Long focus on weapon, mini story in each novel, and sad ending, Liang Yuseng wrote bride with white hair demon and that's what I know, Wen Rui'an wrote Spear of Alarm which was adapted by TVB in 2005, and Huang Yi who wrote A Step in to the Past, Twin of Brothers, and Lethal Weapon of love and passion but I like none of them.

    Another novel of Wen Rui An that has been adapted by TVB into TV series is "Bu Yi Shen Xiang'. The series is called 'Face to Fate'.

    I haven't read a lot of wuxia novels. So far, I've read a few GL novels, JY's Xia Ke Xing, Yuan Yang Dao, Sword of Yue Maiden's english translation, and now reading Other Tale of Flying Fox. Also reading Wei Rui An's 'Si Da Ming Bu Hui Jing Shi' and have read a few pages of 'Spear of Alarm'.

    In terms of writing style, I find GL's novels most enjoyable to read. JY has better plot construction (I mean, the whole story is well crafted instead of having a rushed unclear ending like some of GL novels), but sometimes when I read his novel, I was constantly thinking "when is this chapter going to end?".

    It's been said before, and i'll say it again:

    Jin Yong writes the better wuxia, but Gu Long is the better novelist.
