The English edition of People's Literature, the oldest magazine in new China, is out! We've named it Pathlight: New Chinese Writing, and it can be purchased on Amazon.cn, from Hong Kong and elsewhere, too.
This is China's first literary magazine edited by a bunch of foreigners, and it has cultural significance, too. Officially, this is how Xinhua presented it.
The editor-in-chief of the Chinese edition is Li Jingze (李敬泽) and his assistant is the writer Qiu Huadong (邱华栋), as many know. On the English side, myself, Eric Abrahamsen, Canaan Morse, Brendan O'Kane and Joel Martinsen have all edited, and the first edition features translations from Brian Holton, Martin Merz and Jane Weizhen Pan, Andrea Lingenfelter, Denis Mair, Lucas Klein, Fiona Sze-Lorrain etc.
