It was after dusk.

Lanterns illuminated the restaurant.

The lantern light shone on the faces of Fang Kuan and the others, which dripped with sweat. Cold sweat.

In the thirty fourth episode of The Translated Chinese Fiction Podcast, we are looking at 7 Killers, by Wuxia renegade Gu Long. Our guest is one of the top translators of Wuxia webnovels, Deathblade.

7 Killers is classic Gu Long, and an early entry in Deathblade's career as a translator. We use it as a jump-off point to talk about Chinese web fiction, similarities between Wuxia and other genres, and the hyperpowered characters of xianxia web fiction.
