This weeks genre was chosen by one of my readers. If you’d like to suggest the next genre for FF, please leave a comment. For ideas go to here.

A note on Wuxia - the heroes do not usually serve a lord, wield military power or belong to the aristocratic class. They are often from the lower social classes in ancient Chinese society. Wuxia heroes are usually bound by a code of martial chivalry, that requires them to right wrongs, especially when the helpless are oppressed. The wuxia hero fought for righteousness, typically, seeking to remove an oppressor, or to bring retribution for past wrong-doing.

Amazing. Definitely a new genre for me. I am so impressed by your writing. This was my first try at Fiction Friday and I am definitely still learning. I wonder how much time you allow yourself? And what is your favorite genre?

Another great read! You really have a gift for creating another world and getting the reader to totally believe in it without being too wordy or too descriptive. I am able to picture your characters clearly. I like that.

You always write a cracking fight scene.

You paint an interesting juxapositon with the quiet contemplative man at the start and the fierce, measured fighter at the end. But do it in such a way you believe the two can be the same man.

Interesting genre. More from here?
