    Default Wo Longsheng's "Swallow and Dragon" (飛燕驚龍)

    Hi everyone!

    I'm here to announce that I have begun a new wuxia translation. I've chosen to do Wo Longsheng's "Swallow and Dragon" because I feel it is an influential work, and a good read as well.

    I know Mr. Wo's work is not as well known as Jin Yong and Gu Long, but I still hope you all will drop by and take a look at the translation as it develops.

    I am hosting it offsite at: http://swallowanddragon.blogspot.com/

    Cheers!

    P.S. Please read the translation on the blog, and do not repost it to any other location without my permission. Thanks!

    Default Translation Updated!

    I've got some more stuff up. Here's a link to the table of contents. If you've already read the previous translations, go straight to Chapter 1: The Girl in White (3).

    http://swallowanddragon.blogspot.com...0of%20Contents

    Stay tuned because I already have two more sections nearly ready. I didn't want anyone to be left hanging in the midst of the coming fight scene, so I translated all the way through, and will now release them section by section. The next two parts should appear over the coming week or so.

    Cheers,

    Josh

    A new update.

    I apologize for the slow pace of updates, and appreciate everyone's patience. If there were a paying market for translators of wuxia stories, it would be a different world, but as it is, I've got to squeeze this project into my spare time.

    Cheers, everyone!

    Sorry to have been away for so long. I've finally got a new section up. The back-story is just starting to fill in, so this and the next section are very critical for understanding the overall plot. Hope you all enjoy!

    Thank you. It's been some time since last update and I was beginning to worry, that you abandoned the project. Good to know, that you are still intending to continue

    Just a small update, but it completes the backstory about the origins of the Map of Concealed Truth, and the Monadic Codex.
