The Adventures of Lu Xiao Feng, Book One, Chapter Three, Part One23/09/2006 Duración: 21min
Lu Xiao Feng finds himself face to face with the Golden Roc Emperor, and the secrets of an ancient empire are revealed. Knowledge brings power, but in this case, it also brings debts, obligations...and danger. As a general note, at various times China has been dotted with minor kingdoms, especially in Western China where the terrain makes it difficult to travel. While there has been one central ruler for the central plains area of China for most (but not all) of history since the first Emperor, the farther West you go, the more the rule of Imperial law tended to break down. Enjoy! Rob

The Adventures of Lu Xiao Feng, Book One, Chapter Two Picking up where the last chapter left off, we find out where Lu Xiao Feng got off to as he escaped an "awful fate" at the end of the last chapter. As this chapter is a little short compared with the previous one, I'm putting up the whole chapter in one go. I don't think I'll hear any complaints. ^_- I got another new microphone since I was unhappy with the quality of the last one, finally breaking down and getting a proper mic of decent quality. I'm still getting used to it, but from here on in the quality of the recordings should be pretty good, and consistant. Sorry about the varying quality of the first few parts, but at least we're all set now on the technical side of things. Enjoy! Rob
The Adventures of Lu Xiao Feng Book One Chapter One Part Two10/09/2006 Duración: 23min
Here it is, the second half of the first chapter of the Adventures of Lu Xiao Feng. Some new characters are introduced and the story begins the first of it's long road of twists and turns in a world where nothing and no-one is what they seem. I also got a new microphone, so it will sound a little different (and better), I might go back and redo the earlier podcasts, but right now I want to focus on getting more of these out. Originally these stories were a newspaper serial, and you can see some of that in the format and style of them. I even considered releasing them daily in the smaller parts like the newspaper would, but then decided you'd probably prefer them in chunks instead. Enjoy! Rob
The Adventures of Lu Xiao Feng, Book One, Chapter One, Part One04/09/2006 Duración: 23min
Here is the first half of Chapter One of the story. I decided to divide the Chapters into halves because they are quite long and it will make it easier to get them out on a more regular schedule. There are actually 11 full chapters plus a Prologue and Epilogue to this novel, so it will take a while to read the whole thing. One thing I want to comment on that might annoy some people is the use of accents in the stories. I am using them to try and differentiate the characters more, and I know it's a bit of a hit/miss - love/hate thing for some readers. I think it's necessary, but if you feel otherwise please feel free to comment on them here so I can get some idea of how people feel about them. The Extra notes for this Chapter will be up soon, although I don't plan to do Extra notes for every Chapter or story. I am mostly including them as my own thoughts and as a primer for those new to the genre. Enjoy! Rob
The Adventures of Lu Xiao Feng, Book One, Prologue29/08/2006 Duración: 19min
The Adventures of Lu Xiao Feng was the first full WuXia novel I ever read, and it really helped me to fall in love with the genre. Although it is a little atypical, being more of a mystery-drama-thriller type story, it still has lots of action and revenge in it. This story was translated by a kind translator named Moinelion over on http://www.wuxiapedia.com and then redited for reading by me to try and make some of it sound a little more natural. This is the prologue to the story, introducing two of Lu Xiao Fengs best friends, however, I have cut out two other character introductions because they're not important (IMHO) to this book of the series. If you're curious about them, find the story on WuXiaPedia and check them out, but I can promise you you're not missing much without them and I'm not even sure why Gu Long included them in the prologue. Enjoy! Rob
Welcome to Kung Fu Action Theatre!29/08/2006 Duración: 02min
Welcome to Kung Fu Action Theatre! This will be a reading podcast where I will read fan-translated works of Martial Arts/WuXia Fiction and try to help people learn a little bit about the amazing WuXia genre in general. Anyone with comments, thoughts or questions is invited to post them here or send them privately to me at email@example.com. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have! I have decided to reformat the Podcast into smaller sections to save time and space instead of a single big block radio-style show. Rob
