1/26/10: Biographies Sanguo Yanyi and Sanguozhi

Unread postby James » Tue Jan 26, 2010 6:26 pm

Qu Hui, member of our forum, Scholars of Shen Zhou, has recently prepared some new Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel biographies: Xun You (Gonda), Jian Yong (Xianhe), Fa Zheng (Xiaozhi) and Lü Qian (Zike).

As many of you know the Three Kingdoms community once included a site called the Three Kingdoms Frontier. It was among the earliest successful Three Kingdoms sites published in English. If you recall this website you probably also remember when it went offline a few years ago, rendering much of its forum’s content—including some excellent Sanguozhi translations—difficult or impossible to find. We were asked some time ago to rescue this content to Kongming’s Archives. Although it has taken some time I’m going to begin with a few biographies today, and will follow up with more as time permits. From Stephen So (you may know him by his internet handle, Shu-Han Zhao Lie Di) some Sanguozhi biographies of Wei officers: Hao Zhao (Bodao), Li Dian (Mancheng), Wen Pin (Zhongye) and Xiahou Ba (Zhongquan). Additionally, co-translated by Stephen So and The Historian (another knowledgeable member who frequented The Frontier), Cao Zhen (Zidan).

Brilliant! There are a few SGZs missing that I'd like to read that will hopefully be making an appearence soon!

Any particular biographies, Sun Fin? This is definitely going to be a gradual process. I’ve got a lot going on in my life—thankfully wonderful stuff—so what time I spend on KMA is pretty much just going to be a few hours during a morning here or there. I’m also not sure I have all the biographies that were once saved in the Frontier Forum. I’ll probably have to depend on members of the community to dig up missing scraps.

A few that come immidiately to mind are: Sun Quan, Gongsun Zan, Tian Kai (most of Zan's forces to be honest), Liu Feng, Lu Fan, Sun Yi and Xu Kun but I don't know if the last has a SGZ. a few of those listed have external ones listed but I never find anything when I follow the link.
