The king of wuxia died a few days ago, I highly recommend
his books - the new English translation of The Legend of the
Condor Heroes dropped this year and was excellent, with the
further parts of the Condor Trilogy being translated as we
speak.

His stuff is very entertaining and very readable!

strangely it never occured to me that there is be a whole
genre of literature like this.
A copy of Eiji Yoshikawa´s Musashi is dwelling a lone
existence in my shelf. have you read it? always wanted to
pick it up sometime, but i havent read in a room with other
media in for ages. apart from reading to the gf at nappytime
that is. takes forever to finish a book reading it aloud, it
is a lot of fun though.

does the fighting have (apart from probable exaggeration) a
profound martial arts authencity?

Yes I have read that book, it's very good...

The martial arts and strength/endurace elements are usually
strictly in the fantasy realm, but entertainingly so
