Beyond the Timescape, from Er Gen and translated by Deathblade!

Hi everyone,

We've got an extra special novel launch for you today – Deathblade is back, translating the latest novel from Er Gen! 

As you might therefore have guessed, it means that after six years, we have resumed licensing novels from China Literature, the company behind Qidian. This has been a lengthy process which began quite a while ago, and now that it's come to fruition, we're looking forward to bringing you many more excellent series. Another highly requested Qidian novel will be entering sneak peek later today, so keep an eye on it!

Here is Deathblade's introduction to Beyond the Timescape:

Hey everyone, Deathblade here. I am both humbled and excited to yet again be teaming up with Er Gen, the author of Renegade Immortal (Xian Ni), I Shall Seal the Heavens, and A Will Eternal, and more, to bring you a brand new epic xianxia novel. 

Beyond the Timescape (also known as Beyond Time and Outside of Time) is the story of Xu Qing, a young cultivator in a post-apocalyptic cultivation world where the weak are the prey of the strong, and every day is a fight to survive. In this place, the aura of a god has polluted the entire world, including the resources necessary to practice cultivation. As a result, cultivators risk mutation and death when they try to become more powerful.

Xu Qing’s goals are simple: he wants to survive, and he wants to find his lost family. He’s surrounded by brutality, ruthlessness, and chaos, but he encounters good people that become his close friends. He is not crafty and cowardly like Bai Xiaochun. He is not clever and greedy like Meng Hao. He is his own person, and if you want to find out what he’s like… you’ll have to start reading! (What I will say is that of all the MCs I’ve translated, Xu Qing is the most similar to me in personality.) By the way, if you’re an ISSTH fan and are wondering if this Xu Qing has something to do with the ISSTH Xu Qing, you can check the footnote in the first chapter….

I don’t want to go into too much detail about the story. Suffice it to say that I’m completely thrilled to be bringing Beyond the Timescape to you, and I really hope you enjoy it. It’s AWESOME. Now… what are you waiting for? Go check out the first chapter! 🤩

Up to Chapter 50 will be available today!

And in a few hours at 12:30pm PDT, Deathblade will be hosting a celebratory livestream over on his Youtube channel! This will be the link to it.
