This article starts out about English writing awards are now no longer by English writers. The author gives an interesting history of novels connecting English novels to Japanese and Chinese novels. Plum in the Golden Vase should be a GT novel of the month, 70 love scenes, no idea if its translated to English. Gonna look it up later. I thought most popular Chinese novel was Journey To The West not Romance of The 3 Kingdoms. I do want to state the SNES Romance of the Three Kingdomes 2 is a fantastic strategy game. I do have the novel, translated of course, still haven't tried it, its over 1K pages long and size of a phone book. article Dragonball Z and Dragonball is loosely based on Journey To The West, not sure if there are Saiyans though in the novel.
