alyschu is BACK!!

Did ya’ll miss me?

I was actually back 2 days ago but cleaning, unpacking, delivering presents, checking mail, etc and being sore from all that delayed me a bit. I’ll try to release most if not all ATG, SR, and MEN’s owed chapters before the end of the month but I can’t make any promises. I’ll be releasing a bunch of chapters today and then start counting how much we still owe for each series before I go to bed. ATG+SR will take priority because they have early access patreon stuff I have to post as well.

ps. China was fun although not having stable internet wasn’t. I battled typhoons, floods, camels, and emus!

This is the most memorable event I took a picture of, featuring eldest auntchu: Continue reading “alyschu is BACK!!”

Nie Yinniang – Matriarch of Wuxia

Hey, Guan Zhong (RWX’s assistant) here. Check out my translation of “Nie Yinniang”, hosted by our good friends at volare novels! “Nie Yinniang” is a short story written during the Tang dynasty (618-907 CE) and is one of the first Chinese stories to feature some of the elements so common in wuxia, xianxia, and xuanhuan literature today.

ISSTH Grand Finale is almost here!

Greetings Fellow Daoists!

We are only about one hour away from the ISSTH finale. If you haven’t already, please familiarize yourself with the rules of the contest if you wish to participate, and make sure that the e-mail associated with your account is up to date. That is how I will contact the winners to get shipping information!

I will be releasing a new chapter every hour on the hour, exactly, starting at 9:00 a.m. EST! Try to save some wear and tear on the server by starting your F5 battles at the appropriate time. I WILL NOT release any chapters early, and in the case that one will come late, I’ll mention something on twitter. The release post will come a few minutes after the chapter is up, as I like to double check that all the links work before going live with the announcement post. For those of you on twitter, make sure to use #ISSTH on all your posts about the finale.

I’ve taken a bit of time to create a “soundtrack” for the final chapters. At the top of each chapter you will find a link that will open up a song on Youtube (no ads, don’t worry). I picked each song to match the chapter, so I hope it lends to the reading experience and makes things a bit more exciting.

Alright, I’m going to grab some dinner. I’ll be back in exactly one hour with chapter 1600!

Wuxiaworld Concludes Authorization Framework Discussions With Zongheng!

Hey guys, I’m here to wash away some of the unpleasant feels of the past few days with some really great news. As of this Monday, after extensive discussions over the past month or so Wuxiaworld has concluded negotiations with Zongheng, one of the top three novel websites and the rights holders of popular Wuxiaworld novels such as ‘Against the Gods’ and ‘Upgrade Specialist in Another World’.

The Wuxiaworld Way + Full-Time English Translator Recruitment

Greetings, friends! As Wuxiaworld continues to expand, collaborate with various rights holders, and also possibly accepts outside sources of investment, we shall have an increasing need for more translators to work on projects. I thought it would be good to make a post that transparently explains how Wuxiaworld operates, shows a sample Wuxiaworld contract, and makes it clear that we are seeking motivated full-time English translators!  We need both translators for new projects as well as some to buttress existing projects, so give us a ring! Continue reading “The Wuxiaworld Way + Full-Time English Translator Recruitment”

Wuxiaworld Roadmap

So this is a post I was planning to postpone until things were completely sorted out, but given the situation I thought it was best to make some things aware to all of you. First of all, as might be obvious, for the foreseeable future we will not be taking on any new Qidian novels. As a result, for translators that are potentially interested in joining Wuxiaworld in the future, I strongly urge you to work on non-Qidian novels, as we will not be accepting any new Qidian novels in the near future.

Now then, authorization talks with Zongheng and 17k, two of the largest Chinese webnovel sites aside from Qidian, have been going very well. Continue reading “Wuxiaworld Roadmap”
