Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Editor, Dr T. Matthew Ciolek.

Index and Database on Chinese Writers


Renditions, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China.

Self description:
"The author index is linked to a database which contains information [on] about 600 Chinese writers whose works have appeared in Renditions publications. The translator index lists the works of individual translators. Listings are in alphabetical order."

Supplied note:
"Quite useful little database, containing biographical data as well as a list of most important works, available English translations, and studies and biographies on the authors. However, these lists are by no means complete. Unfortunately no Chinese characters are given, only Hanyu Pinyin transliterations. - hel."

Site contents:
(1) Authors (Biography; Works; Works available in English; Studies and Biographies); (2) Translators; (3) Search.
