We are looking for original fiction set in pre-modern China (that is, before the end of the Qing dynasty). Although China is the focus of this publication, fiction set in Japan, Korea, Vietnam, or other Southeast Asian countries will also be considered. Aside from the historical setting, there is no further thematic requirement. We're looking for well-written, character-driven stories that do more that just show off the author's knowledge of a given historical setting or event. Experimentation with narrative, voice, and other literary techniques is welcome, but not required. Kunlun is the home of both the conventional and the esoteric. Wuxia stories are especially welcomed.Kunlun Journal of Chinese Historical FictionTaiwan
