Gu Long aka Xiong Yaohua

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.

Liang Yusheng aka Chen Wentong

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.
