What is the link to the translation? I don't see it in the origional post.
Yes because the official translation will be released this coming march. So like anime, mostly the fansubbing will be stop (usually ) whenever the anime get license in the US
I have received the official three chapters from Becky for her translation of Xiao Shiyi Lang/ The Eleventh Son. It's now available for pre-ordering and will be out in April at Amazon.com
Check out the new chapters at the Gu Long Reading Room:
also, the link to the translation at amazon.com:
Cool! Even though I have read the novel, I definitely plan on checking out her book. I'm a big fan of her translations.. I think she does a great job of conveying Gu Long's words.
a note from becky
and the book is out on the 28th Mac 2004, I already pre-ordered them from amazon. Can't wait to read more on Little Master & Count CarefreeSorry, everyone, I cannot post translations of Xiao Shiyi Lang any more. I know many people are waiting to read the next chapter of Xiao Shiyi Lang, but I'm sorry to say that I cannot post new chapters of the translations any more. I have obtained the English translation right from the copyright owner of this novel, and I'm negotiating a contract with an American publisher to have this translation published in the US. It will probably come out in May next year. And neither the copyright holder nor the publisher wants me to post any new chapters or secretly circulate new chapters via email.
So has anyone gotten their book yet? B&N doesn't even have it in stock, and it says 4-6 weeks on amazon.
I've been keeping tabs on when its coming out on the publisher's website and they say it will be coming out in april so hopefully it will be available some time this month.

An update - I finally received my copy from Homa Books yesterday. Tom Lee from Homa Books emailed me on Friday that the book was shipping and it arrived Monday, priority mail. So for those of you that are interested, the book is now available after months of delay.
