    Default New translation to be started: Flying Fox 雪山飛狐

    Hi,
    Just had someone reach out to me, he's looking to start on
    Fox Volant of the Snowy Mountain AKA Flying Fox of the Snowy Mountain
    (雪山飛狐)
    It has already been written in an abridged format, but we want to do a good, complete, fan translation. If anyone feels they can help, please get in touch.
    Best,
    J

    The other exciting classic is the sword stained in royal blood from the same author. When I saw the latest tv series of the two, the sword stained story was a lot more action packed.. And there was no abridged version of it anywhere that I can find... Reconsider?

    Yeah, I agree and selection is fine w/ me... I "read" the story using a text2speech program and Flying Fox was a bit draggy... the end was unclear/open ended... the version I had at least... Sword Stained.... was more exciting a scenes moved along a lot quicker, it seems... The TV series cut out way too many scenes, and changed a few, it seems... but nonetheless, it was quite consistent w/ the general story.

    Hi... actuallythe guy doing the translation, had already read Flying Fox, and my understanding was the Sword Stained was not considered Jin YOng's best work... probably going to continue it, sorry. Will try to get some other books if we get more recruits.
