Announcements

Hey guys, I'm absolutely tickled to be announcing that Beastmaster of the Ages has gone live on Wuxiaworld!  It's been one of the most popular VIP sneak peek novels we've seen in a while, and now it hath come to the masses!  Just as exciting - it marks the formal return of Wei!  Wei was our translator who finished Terror Infinity long ago on Wuxiaworld, and ever since then he's been lurking around, honing his craft while trying to find the perfect book for him.  Now, with Beastmaster, he has found it and we gladly re-welcome him back into our ranks (although he never really left - he was lurking)!  We now launch with fifty chapters and our usual 2 chapters/day schedule for Chinese novels!

I'm actually not surprised he chose this novel - Beastmaster of the Ages has been the most popular paid novel on licensing partner 17k.com for quite some time now!  The author is Feng Qingyang, who also wrote Heaven's Devourer, which was launched earlier this year. The story is set in a world where people are born with their lifelong...

Hey guys, I bring news! Two brand new novels have just gone live on Wuxiaworld - Fields of Gold and VRMMO: Passing of the Sword!

Fields of Gold was one of Volare's most popular novels, and it has now come to Wuxiaworld! FOG is an ancient/historical slice-of-life 'transmigration into the past' type of novel which details the story of Lin Xiaowan/Yu Xiaocao, who was transmigrated into a small fishing village girl's body, and who embarks on a path to becoming the most famous farmer in the Great Ming Dynasty, with the help of a little divine stone that can accelerate crop growth. Not only did she conquer the taste buds of the ancients, but she would also try to build up her own business empire and become the wealthiest person in the entire dynasty. It's gotten a lot of really rave reviews for those who enjoy the genre, so if you like this type of fiction at all, I strongly urge you to give it a shot. It is launching with over four hundred chapters already done! Myst and Sanguine are the primary translators for this...

Everyone, I'll keep it short and sweet - Wuxiaworld is hiring again!  This time, we are hiring in two categories - Korean Translators and Audiobook Narrators.  

Korean Translators: We are looking for experienced, competent Korean-to-English translators as we continue to expand our Korean section (and hopefully bring back a few oldies as well).  Applicants should have native-level grasp of English and strong Korean as well, and be available for an absolute minimum of 30 chapters a month, with priority for those who can go beyond this level.  Depending on length and experience, initial starting pay per chapter is $40 - $60, and can go considerably beyond this based on the performances of the novels. We will be selecting a total of five translators for this initial grouping.

Audiobook Narrators: Our work on ebooks has been proceeding apace (check out our newly released The Wastelander, The Elysian, and The Anarchist on Amazon), and we're looking to do multiple simultaneous releases of ebooks/audiobooks.  To that end,...

Hey guys, was two weeks enough to catch up on the last batch of novel releases?  For those of you who said yes, here are FOUR more coming your way, all from veteran translators - alyschu, etvolare, ensj, and pika!  We also have a $0.99 sale on Coiling Dragon on Amazon for the next three days, which coincides with some new news on the ebook front and the possibility of Coiling Dragon coming back to Wuxiaworld.  Read on!

NEW SERIES

Necropolis Immortal: Necromancy, no filler, and unexplained mysteries of the world arrive with Necropolis Immortal! This cultivation novel quickly veers away from the usual cliches and into the realm of the spookily unexplored. Lu Yun, commandant of the tomb raiders, arrives in a fantastical world of immortals. It’s a realm filled with shiny new toys—ahem, tombs to be explored. What seems like a treasure-hunting jaunt is soon tinged with intrigue. What else does he have to solve other than how to stay alive in half a year’s time? Oh, and his new body is afflicted with erectile dysfunction....

First and foremost - the Wuxiaworld iOS app is finally live for both iPhone and iPad.  At long last, soon (tm) has become now!  No, this is not a drill!  This is also four days past April Fool's, so it aint a joke either!  Click the link to go download it!  Our VIP subscribers have been playing with it for the past week or two, and we've incorporated all of their feedback as well as the lessons learned from our Android launch.  We are now live, and it's ready for all of you as well.  Happy reading!

Coinciding with this iOS launch, we also have five new special novels in the Wuxiaworld Direct program to add to your library and viewing pleasure!  Just in time to take your mind off all the madness going around the world.  I hope you guys can enjoy the little oasis which is Wuxiaworld and take your mind off of all of the very, very unfortunate stuff going on right now.  We have two mysteries, a scifi-romance, a comedy-romance, and a cultivation/comedy novel.  As you can see, we are really trying to switch it up for...

Hey guys!  It's been a bit longer than we had anticipated, but we're really trying to roll things in together instead of overloading you guys with too many announcements, so we wanted to get it all together at once.  We continue our revamp with a new Steam-inspired review system (mouse-over covers to see current ratings), have launched two new novels the past week, and will be launching the remaining four Korean novels at the rate of one each day, starting tomorrow.  Read on!

CHINESE NOVELS (NEWLY RELEASED)

Refining the Mountains and Rivers: We have been waiting so long for this novel!  Hyorinmaru, who translated Martial World, had started it almost a year ago, but because it was a top-rated novel that was SHARED by two different publishers (Migu and Zongheng), the actual paperwork took forever and a half.  We nearly gave up on this thing several times, but in the end we persevered and got the license!  Y'all know how fast hyorinmaru is, so you can expect fast and steady releases going forward.  We're just getting...

Hey there everyone, this has been a good while in the making!  This should've happened towards the end of last month, but as most of you have probably heard things in China (where me and the wifey are) have been absolutely crazy the past month or so, and so things got delayed.  Finally, however, we're getting things rolling again!  The 'new genres' are now officially launching with five novels (and more coming).  These are all part of our new 'Wuxiaworld Direct' program, which means that we've centralized a lot of things to ensure that editing and uploading regularity is upheld.  We've also made some changes to the front page (with more iteration coming).  With all that said, here are the five novels we are launching with: Demoness' Art of Vengeance, Fortunately I Met You, Genius Detective, Rebirth of a Fashionista, and Attack of the Wastrel!  All five are different in their own ways, and they are all very good novels, and the translation quality is excellent!

Let me give some brief introductions to these five...

A slightly belated post, but, Ranker's Return has officially launched! This is another novel translated by RainbowTurtle, and, as with Dungeon Predator and Everyone is Young Except for Me, will be translated at a pace of seven chapters per week. 

Gang Hyeonu was the strongest player in the early days of VRMMO Arena. But, with his interest in the game waning and the offers of fame and riches from esports teams holding no meaning to him, he quits. Two years later after his family have been betrayed and driven to bankruptcy, Hyeonu returns to Arena in desperate need of money and searching for revenge. Will he be able to rise to the top again, or will the two year gap in knowledge and experience be too much for him to overcome? Click here to go straight to Chapter 1.

Our Korean releases don't end here though – Game of Divine Thrones, Moon's Labyrinths, Overlord of Blood and Iron, and Tomb Raider King will all be arriving in the coming weeks! And that's not mentioning the Chinese novels on the way...

Hi everyone, here's the second of our top three voted Korean novels: Everyone is Young Except for Me! This one is translated by RainbowTurtle, who you'll already know from Overgeared and about a dozen other novels at this point. EYEM tells the story of Choi Chuntaek, a former ruffian turned "ordinary" grandfather who jumps into VRMMO Arcstar to keep a protective watch over his beloved granddaughter. Enjoy the hilarity that ensues as this 67 year old retiree gets to grips with the world and mechanics of an MMO, and rediscovers the wild side of his youth!

As with Dungeon Predator, Everyone is Young Except for Me will be releasing at an ongoing pace of seven chapters per week. This one’s a bit of a soft launch however, starting from next week, as RainbowTurtle has been busy volunteering to help with the Australian bushfires! The last of the top three, Ranker’s Return, will be released in a few days, with the remaining four novels following.

Hey guys, happy new year!  Voting has concluded on the Korean novels, and the top three are, in order of vote totals, Dungeon Predator, Everyone is Young Except Me, and Ranker's Return!  Thus, as promised, Dungeon Predator has been released to everyone!  Our translator, Boko, is a Korean translations veteran, and you can be confident in his work!  Dungeon Predator follows the story of Choi Jae Woo.  As the sole breadwinner of his household, Jae Woo worked hard to give his family a good life, which he accomplished by being one of the best gamers in the hottest VR game around.  Alas, as things were starting to look up, he had an unfortunate meeting with truck-kun and ended up in a coma for quite some time.  When he woke up... well, things were a bit different, but he was ready to jump right back where he started, and this time with a bit of a boost...

Come and read!  And once again, Happy New Year!
