This Week’s Edition of “Did You Know?”

Did you know we publish books too?

While we have long been a distributor of China related reading and educational materials, we also publish our own books on China from our San Francisco and Beijing offices. Our two imprints, China Books (Yes, that’s the same name as our distribution business) and Long River Press, have a combined 60 years of experience in  publishing about China.


At China Books and Long River Press we publish English translations of works like Lao She’s Teahouse and Mao Dun’s Spring Silkworms, but also actively search for and cultivate new literary talent writing about China. Since 2012, for instance, we have been publishing some of the first Chinese Wuxia style novels written in English, in the process bringing an entirely new genre to Western audiences. You can check out a couple of our most well received Wuxia books, The Snow Wolf Series, here and here.  All in all we publish around 30 new titles each year.


We’re in the process of putting up all of our books on our Pinterest account. You can also find our titles on this site or on Amazon.  You can also request a complete catalog on the front page.
