Peerless Sword is a forthcoming wuxia novel from Snow Forest Studio. It is a translation of the 1963 wuxia novel 《無雙劍》by Taiwan wuxia author Qin Hong (秦紅). The story follows Huang Bo, a child weiqi prodigy, as he sets out among the rivers and lakes to look for his father who went missing just before a big tournament on Mt. Huang which would decide who would claim the title of “Peerless Under Heaven” and be regarded as the best swordsman among the martial fraternity.

Peerless Sword will be the first official wuxia novel translation to be published since Gu Long’s novel The Eleventh Son was published by Homa & Seka Books in 2004. Publication is tentatively set for 2016.

As this is an independent publishing venture, your support of this translation is much appreciated. The success of the publication of Peerless Sword will hopefully pave the way for more official wuxia translations in the future.

Stay tuned to this blog for more updates on this project. When a publication date is set, it will be posted here. Thanks for your support!

so i was wondering if anyone in here tried Age of wushu? probably many of you did, but how many that are truly into the wuxia world? i played the game some time ago and it was very fun too bad i always ended up playing alone and with people who played the game only for it being a game and not for its wuxia setting, which bring me to the topic at hand i would like to know if there are people in this community that would like to start a fixed group in age of wushu? i was thinking into making our own mini movies or things of the sort if things go well enough of course is a lot of work but i would love to take part on it.

if anyone is interested please email me at lightmaster66@hotmail.com and say you wanna do some roleplay on it

Wuxia series remakes: tiring deja-vu or new experience?

The truth according to wuxia (not to be taken too seriously - I think).

Brief review of WuXia, the 2011 movie with Donnie Yen and Kaneshiro Takeshi.

Painted Skin II: The Resurrection picspam. (Not a wuxia movie per se, just the best Chinese movie I've watched in 2012 so far) For my thoughts on the movie and two others, see here.

The Crying Bird Scatters the Clouds Poster

Among the multitude of martial arts schools within the wulin, one name towers above the rest: the Thunder Cloud School. Nestled in the mountains of Jiangxi, the members of the Thunder Cloud School practice their art in seclusion.

That peace is shattered when their senior disciple is found dead, implicating the school in the recent assassination of the local Prefect. Now, with the school members wanted by Imperial troops, and their master awaiting execution in the capital, disciple Hong Jielong, along with a junior member who can barely use a spear, must learn the truth of his elder brother’s past, and find a way to save his master’s life and protect the school from total destruction.

But while Hong Jielong and company roam the rivers and lakes looking for answers, a more deadly enemy waits in the shadows…
