Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio
A Roll of the Dice by Lnhammer
'The snow was deep enough, there was no sign which way the road lay, and the brothers disagreed which way to turn -- Liu pointing one way, Wang another. Liu grinned and, following their usual method for settling their disagreements, pulled out his dice cup.' A slow-burning tale that builds to a conclusion both surprising & inevitable. It works well for those, like me, who don't know the canon

Songs for the Jingwei Bird by Salifiable
'When she ran out of paper, she tore off panels of cloth from her clothes, and when modesty cut short that tactic, she plucked leaves from trees she passed. When she ran out of ink, she burned twigs and used the ashes.' Three delightful tales within a tale explore themes such as reality & unreality drawn from Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio, and the whole is neatly framed within the story of the Jingwei Bird. An absolute gem!
