Gu Long and Jin Yong are the two premier, contemporary Wuxia novelists that everybody knows. I grew up watching mostly adaptations of Jin Yong's novels (The Condor Trilogy, The Demi Gods and Semi Devils, The Smiling Proud Wanderer, etc.) and then I finally got around to reading some of the novels.
As far as Gu Long goes, I only watched an adaptation of Xiao Li Fei Dao a LONG time ago (it must have been made in the 70's from what I remember, and I watched it as a kid in the 90's) and have very vague memories of it and the story.
To the more knowledgeable on this board, how comparable are the martial arts (and characters, for that matter) in Gu Long's novels to that of Jin Yong's? Are there any superhuman skills comparable to Xiang Long Shi Ba Zhang, Liu Mai Shen Jian and the like?
