Hi guys,
Has anyone made/published English version of the old Three Kingdoms Lianhuanhua (I hope I typed this correctly?

I googled for it but so far I only found French and Indonesian translations.

Thank you!

Hi,
there used to be an old publication by Canfonian Pte Ltd in the 90s but it was discontinued. There were 3 volumes in total and featured the more major chapters of three kingdoms. Used to find them in the public library but not sure if they still exist anymore.

In comparison, the original chinese lianhuanhua comprises of 5 volumes and includes much of the Sima Yi era stories. I have been searching around to collect the entire set but even the Chinese version is difficult to find. :|

Are there more than one version? Because my set is 10 volumes, and I've seen pocket-sized ones with even more.

I don't remember much of the Sima Yi era stories because I remember when I was a kid, once I got to where all the original Shu cast were dying off I was like "this is a crap story!" and stopped reading the lianhuanhua :-/
