I'll like to thank Jack for his efforts in consolidating the list. I have adapted it with his permission on Wuxia Society.
"Laughing Proudly at the World" should be renamed as Laughing in the Wind or The Smiling, Proud Wanderer These two are the MOST popular titles.....
The recent TV adaptation was made into an idol drama called "Swordsman"
Thanx for the effort...
The following tools can produce ePub v3 files as well as ePub v2...
Adobe FrameMaker (in Adobe Technical Communication Suite)
Apple iBooks (proprietary variation of ePub v3 for Apple devices)
BlueGriffon EPUB Edition
oXygen XML Editor
Tobi - talking book authoring tool
My issue is that I only have a kindle... generally I go through a few interations on calibre to make sure it looks right, check it on my kindle, then post it... I'd ideally like to see how it looks in epub v3 first...
I can share the cleaned up docx or htm files if somebody wants to convert to epub v3, and proof it?
Posted all 5 books... will look at ROCH, SPW next, but will be unable to work onanything for next few days... some stuff to take care of at home.

by translated Herbert A. Giles is public domain and the epub version already available is horribly formatted (no formatting).
Many of Chinese & Hong Kong movies and TV series are based on or adapted from his stories... because they are all royalty free....

But sometimes literal translation "sucks". I've read the abridged John Minford's translation of Deer & the Cauldron many years ago, and it was almost incomprehensible from all the "accurate" literal translations. For example, the recently completed one by foxs is much better in that she does not put too much effort in providing "proper" English equivalents for many of the phrases/words.
The use of Laughing Proudly at the World to strike a balance between conveying the meaning while sounding natural in English, though "proudly" is not a give a very accurate picture. It has a dual meaning, first being the reference to the music score, and the second is an embodiment of Linghu Chong's journey to and eventual attainment of enlightenment, the state of divinity.
Dear spcnet community,
inspired by this thread I have assembled two translations of Gu Long novels into epub files and now want to share them with you.
XLFD.epub is "Sentimental Swordsman, Ruthless Sword"
JDSJ.epub is "The Legendary Siblings"
抬 望 眼 风 霜 岁 月
仗 剑 停 马 问
谁 在 心 中 刻 上 血 痕
更 令 我 终 偿 爱 恨
挥 出 一 片 心
交 出 一 个 孤 身
决 战 世 上 人 类 恶 运
完 全 无 惧 意，心 有 冲 天 志
振 臂 我 跃 起 上 阵
斜 阳 里 跨 开 箭 步 冲 锋 上 路
我 为 你 傲 然 上 阵
我 为 你 傲 然 上 阵
Will post it on the site.
Sorry there hasn't been much movement of late on posting translations (work/ house move/ then vacation). Am going to try to get Condor Heroes and other stuff uploaded soon.
We have also been trying to recruit translators from various non-SPCTV.net sources with a view to translating more books.
Anybody who has any interest in participating, please get in touch?
thanks for the epub!
Have updated with epub/ mobi Condor Trilogy... still very much a work in progress...
Not very happy with the aesthetics, but like the idea of a table we can complete.
Will try to fill in some Jin Yong, Gu Long and WH Demoness shortly.
Thanks to Foxs and tungfuurue, and jayjenxi.
And of course if anybody wants to help collaborate on new translations...
Looking at Fox Volant... would be great to have complete Jin Yong unabridged set.
Thanks - got the proud wanderer and white hair bride.
Are more ebooks coming we can look forward to?
Sorry have been sidetracked with work... looking to get a few more out soon . Also starting some more translations including Jin Yong's Flying Fox... hoping to recruit more people.
