I was saying that it looks like an interesting project to join. If you are ready for it.

December has a couple of Xu Zechen stories - I liked what I read of his Running through Zhongguancun, though I never finished it (my fault, not his). Translations and audio available. 


There's also a translation competition - the text is worth reading anyway, I quite enjoyed it.
