    Anything by Huang Yi would be deeply appreciated!

    There was that one novel whih was being translated on this forum called Legend of the Long Sword Master which sadly, the original translaor Grundle dropped.

    If you could pick up that novel I for one would be deeply appreciative, not all wuxia translations need to be Gulong or Jinyong, and I think Huang Yi deserves more exposure!

    I would request 大唐游侠传 ( Da Tang You Xia Zhuan) aka Paladins in Troubled Times. I am actually watching the drama and it's pure awesomeness, I would love to read the book as well;P

    thank for your work on OTG. If you were to start, it would be great if you can try Lu Xiao Feng. Maybe book 6, since Fox will take book 5. That way, we will soon have all the LXF.

    thanks

    I still not able to decide which book to translate.

    Unfortunately I am not a big fan of Gu Long ...I would prefer something close to Jin Yong's work. Since most of good novels of Jin Yong are already done so I am a bit confused.

    I read Grundle's translation of Legend of the Long Sword Master and liked it a lot but it has 123 chapters. It took me 10 months to complete 10 chapters of Xia ke xing so calculation is about...10 years

    I heard a lot about Liang Yusheng and how his style is more similar to Jin Yong. i looked in to his novels and they are normally of average length...about 30-40 chapers.

    So Please suggest a good novel by Liang Yusheng...lets venture in to some unchatered territory ...(obviously i wont be translating his famous poetries). I am currently watching paladins in troubled times and it also looks good but I don't like to translate if I already know the story.

    How about 七剑下天山? Chinese text here: http://www.cnnovels.net/wx/liangyush...xts/index.html

    According to wikipedia (since I've never read it), the novel "acts as a closing chapter for the love story between Zhuo Yihang and Lian Nichang from its prequel novel Romance of the White-Haired Maiden". Might be interesting for those following foxs' translation of Legend of the White Haired Maiden.

    Tsui Hark made a movie out of it - Seven Swords - but it was all over the place.

    I would be interested in any of the LYS things that relate to the Mount Heaven Cycle. There is a summary of Seven Swordsmen floating around that I think is incomplete, and I as I understand there are quite a few books that contribute to the arc of the Mount Heaven story between White Haired Maiden and Seven Swords (and for all I know beyond that). I hear of LYS being one of the "Big 3", but if so he is under-represented in the forums I have seen.

    Anything by Huang Yi would be deeply apprecitive. The length of thew novels is the exact reason for my personal request because if they never start they will never finish. Like other similar long series they usually pass from person to person, so have no fear and just translate as much as you can.

    I have already seen the 2003 TV series. As a translator its pretty difficult to maintain the motivation if I know what's going to happen next

    Right now I have zeroed in on a Novel from Liang Yusahen called "ping zong xia ying Lu" (The Legend of the Travelling Hero or The Wanderer chronicles).

    Actually Mawguy had done its summary in wuxiasociety...looks good.
    I will first try a couple of chapters and see if I can handle Liang Yusheng or not....
