I'd like to chime in and ask what are the new novels too. I'm really interested in this.
You probably missed my reply to Dongfang Bubai. There seem to be some interest in this so I'll do up a post about these new novels.

My favourite so far are the 1996 Laughing Proudly at the World and the 2003 Demi-Gods & Semi-Devils. DGSG got the casting right. I really dislike the scrawny Xiao Feng in the new version.

Re: New novels?

Xian Xia is a good idea, but is that a different genre or the new wuxia? If xian xia is accepted here, that would open up a lot more topics to talk about as it's quite popular now. I swear I replied to this but seems like my post didn't get through. Well, I put some thought to it and I would say xi...

Re: Wuxia power ranking

Some masters intentionally don't pass down their skills because the skill requires too much sacrifice from the practitioner, or that there's too much risk involved, and they don't want their disciple/s to risk it or sacrifice too much. Sometimes it's better to know less than more. That's an interes...

Re: Gu Long power ranking

Yeah, since the authors don't compare their abilities, we need to make inferences based on what happened in the novels.

Re: Original text

How about a separate page with the original text? People can still open both pages and put them side by side. It's a good suggestion. I only have the third edition texts.

Re: Four Great Beauties

Hence it's best to read the novel first so we have the chance to form our own image, then watch the movie/series after.
