    Default Which wuxia novel has sold the most copies?

    Now this is one question we've never tried at the forum. I wonder if anybody has ever kept statistics on this kind of stuff?

    What would you say is the best-selling wuxia novel of all time?

    I'm betting it's LOCH.

    Edit: Unless Journey to the West counts as wuxia ;P

    Probably not; that's more folklore/mythology/fantasy.

    Does unauthorized copies count? I know HSDS was very popular in Vietnam during the 60s and 70s.
    You do know that it is just fiction, dont you?

    I'm guessing LOCH since that was the first series that became very popular. If not, maybe The Deer and the Cauldron, that one seems be to very well received among the mainstream readers and not just hardcore wuxia fans.

    I consider "Joueney to the west" as a fantasy or adventure

    Probably LOCH. Although most non-wuxia readers I know tend to have read "Deer and the Cauldron" and "State of Divinity".

    Yes but Journey to the West teaches more about history and culture then any Wuxia novel. Especially since it was part written as a satire of life and politics in those days.
