Summary

(taken from NovelUpdates)

The Peng Society for Gentlemen–a secret friend-making club for the homosexual men of the Great Xia Dynasty. Its services were designed to help its members along in their quest for their lifelong partners. Upon paying a monthly fee of fifty coins, members could get themselves listed in The Pengornisseur after providing a self-portrait, a mailing address, their age and hobbies, as well as a self-introduction. All members would receive a copy of the monthly publication, and they could communicate with one another in private using the information in The Pengornisseur.

Wu Xingzi, a bachelor about to turn forty, worked as the adviser to the magistrate in Qingcheng County.

Qingcheng County was a place with barely any resources. In other words, it was poor. In the list of counties of the Great Xia Dynasty, it had been ranked at the bottom for the past two hundred years.

Wu Xingzi felt that his life was hopeless: not only was he a homosexual, he was also a virgin. Even his retirement fund was lacking. Worse still, his looks were… forgettable.

He might as well die.

Hence, Wu Xingzi decided to commit suicide on his fortieth birthday. However, he was unwilling to remain a virgin to death! And so, gritting his teeth, he joined the Peng Society for Gentlemen and received The Pengornisseur. It was very painful; after all, fifty coins were the sum of his daily expenditure for ten days! He would only pay it once, and he was determined to succeed on his first try.

Review

I’ve had enough of Tumblr. They automatically terminated my account and I didn’t even know why. All my blogs were taken down, except for lizonkawebnovels.com. I’m guessing they forgot to include that one since it had a custom domain name.

But even though lizonkawebnovels.com was still up, I couldn’t access it. I had my account and my blogs restored within 24 hours after I reported it to Tumblr, but I’m still mad about it.

This is the third time it happened, and I’m not gonna risk having it happen again. Hence, after much indignation, I’m finally abandoning that blue hellsite for my translations blog. My personal and fandom Tumblr blogs are still up though, but for Lizonka Novels (previously known as Lizonka Web Novels), WordPress is its new home.

I hastily set up this site within 2-3 days. There might be some errors, so I will occasionally change stuff within this week until I get everything right.


While I was transferring my translations here, I also took the liberty of revising some chapters (mostly Bestial Blade) for better readability. I also corrected some minor spelling and grammar errors that I had missed when I first published them.

However, the remastered version of previously published chapters will only be available here on lizonkanovels.wordpress.com. It’s too much of a hassle to also update my translations posted on Wattpad.

But don’t worry, you don’t have to read everything on my site again if you’ve only been reading on Wattpad. I didn’t change much… just a few words here and there. However, I strongly recommend reading the future updates here on the site instead of on Wattpad. I post the translations here first, and any future edits will only be posted here. You could also easily jump from your reading position to a translator’s note and back.
