    really enjoyed reading the Condor Heroes. I believe that it was my first long novel in Chinese, and remember how much fun I had reading it. There was no translation at the time, and I was fighting my way through it with help of a fan translation that somebody put up online as a collaborative effort (seriously, the Internet can be saw awesome sometimes). It opened up this whole new fantasy world, that was not available to most of my friends or acquaintances at that time.

    Sad to see him go, but like Lu says, 94 is a fine age.

    Fox Volant of Snowy Mountain is the one I've read, in translation. The translation is not that great, but I loved the book. I'd read that one and The Deer and the Cauldron and only start on the Condor series once the translation is finished, to make sure you can read on.

    I am a bit saddened by this news, but not very, since 94 really is a ripe old age.

    94, I bet he saw some changes in his life time, not read anything of his.

    Are there any translations? and what would anyone recommend as a first read
