We had a real nice Wuxia thread up for a few days. Let's see if we can have another.

>What is this?
Wuxia is a genre of Chinese fiction that focuses on superhumanly-talented martial artists and the world they live in. High-flying action meets Daoist/Buddhist iconography wrapped up in a noblebright, chivalrous package. Most of the time, that is.
>Where can I learn more?
There are several wuxia fansites out there. Just look online.
>Where should I start?
Anything by Jin Yong would be a great starting point.
