I’m just a Westerner who likes to read Chinese cultivation & martial arts novels.

Readers new to these novels often struggle with some of the foreign ideas and terminology. That was certainly the case with me! When I was curious about something, it sometimes took a surprising amount of time to research and understand it. After doing this a few times, I thought to myself that if I was going to do all of this research, I might as well share the results with other readers, right?

This site is dedicated to you, fellow readers.

Here at Immortal Mountain, I’m maintaining an extensive glossary and occasionally writing articles that’ll hopefully be of use to you all. Enjoy!
