Cai Dongfan's Romance series?

Does anyone know if Cai's Popular Romance of Dynasties series of books has been translated into English, either officially or fan-translated?

I read about it on another site, and it sounds like it's similar to Romance of the Three Kingdoms, but covers Early Han all the way through the founding of the Republic. I'm eager to give it a try!

These sound amazing but sadly there doesn't seem to be any hint of an available translation. :(
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

After a big of digging I can only seem to find the untranslated versions, I'm afraid.

Thanks for checking, guys.

Just another reason to stop procrastinating on my learning of Chinese. :oops:

Haha, you and me both. I meant to start learning because it'd be nice to at least be able to read modern Chinese papers and such, but... I'm lazy. :mrgreen:
