We have WuxiaSocietys translations, official texts, and works hosted on external sites. With uncertainty hanging over some of the other sites, we are collecting translations to host them on WuxiaSociety.Let us knowif you think a particularwuxia translation should be listed here.

External translations are done by fans and posted on other sites. These are often forums that are not optimised for reading and commenting on novels. Many of these sites run on outdated software and have a risk dying off like one of the many that litter the wuxia fan site graveyard.

Moving those translations to WuxiaSociety is a big undertaking as it requires contacting the translators (many of whom are no longer active on those forums), collating the translations, and, ideally, editing them for quality and accuracy. The novels were often casual translations by several people with no consistency in style and terms used making them rather disjointed when combined.

We have also listed the official books, for those of you who prefer translation authorised by the authors. These are Amazon affiliate links, meaning if you purchase anything on Amazon via the links, we earn a commission that goes to maintaining the website.

Known as one of the Three Xiake1 xik. A person who engages in chivalrous acts.of Wuxia, Jin Yong is considered a pioneer in modern wuxia literature and a titan in the world of wuxia pop culture. Learn more about Jin Yong onhis profile.

The youngest of of the Three Xiake of Wuxia, Gu Long was the most prolific. His novels employ short sentences and paragraph, relying heavily on dialogues. Unlike the other two Xiake who weaved Chinese history and culture into their writing, Gu Long focused on idiosyncrasies of life, wit, philosophy, and plot filled with mystery and thrill.

His works have been adapted into television series and films. He later started a film studio to produce adaptions of his own works.

One of the Three Xiake of Wuxia, Liang Yusheng is credited as the pioneer of new school wuxia literature. He infused historical elements in his stories and his peers such as Jin Yong later followed his style that has come to define the genre.

His works have seen numerous movie adaptations. However, the translations of the books are lacking. Something we hope to rectify in the future.

While we try to optimise the website for the best reading experience, we understand that some of you prefer to read offline using your favourite ebook app and device. So we have created ebooks of the fan translations in both .epub and .mobi formats.
