Update: Oops! It looks like “Legend of Zelda: The Edge and The Light” is no longer available in print form (at least on Lulu), because Lulu doesn’t accept fanfiction. I’ve now taken it offline, and it’s unlikely it’ll be available in print again, so thanks to all the folks who bought a hardcopy. That said, I’ll still be uploading the story as we go. I’ll update if I find alternative printing options, but it’s unlikely at this point.
Thanks to all the people who bought a copy of the Zelda book! If you want more of my work, please buy a copy of my book Small Shen too - there’s FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING at this link!
Here’s the Chapter 6 trailer, folks, composed by my friend Yunyu.
Here’s Chapter 5, folks, with an actual TRAILER up. Previously, I’ve touted these videos as “chapter soundtracks”, but they’re really meant to be trailers (except that we were behind). Now that we’ve caught up, I can now invite you to take a sneak peak of the rest of Chapter 5!
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good 2013 New Year’s celebration! I’m now posting Chapter 4 up, and will update 5-6 pages every Friday like the other places where this is posted. It’s up on MangaFox, DeviantArt, SmackJeeves and now Archive of Our Own!
Small Shen with author Kylie Chan and musician Yunyu is #4 on the SciFi Bestseller’s List at Dymocks! Get a copy this Christmas!!
I’ve decided to just post the chapters up directly, without splitting them into 2. It’s become too much of a hassle. So, here is Chapter 3 in all its entirety, and also Yunyu’s compositions for each chapter.
Hi everyone! My next book Small Shen has been published (from Harper Collins Voyager), and will be out in Australian bookstores in December 2012! I was super-excited when I got this book – the art was printed on high quality paper, and it just looks fabulous.
This is a collaboration with best-selling author Kylie Chan, and includes a free song (book soundtrack!) by my friend and long-time collaborator Yunyu, called Butterflies, that can be downloaded from a link at the back of the book. As you can see from these pictures below, the book is a mix between prose and comics.
Check out the book trailer here!

Here’s the Chapter 2, of my Legend of Zelda fanfic. This was originally split into 2 different posts, but this proved too complicated, so I combined the two, and they’re back as one post. Here’s also Yunyu’s composition for Chapter 2!

Hi all! From May 2012 to now, I’ve been working on a piece of fan-fiction for the ‘Legend of Zelda’ universe, a well-known video game series. I’ve been a big fan of Zelda for a long time, and I actually did a random series of comics for it back in 2006 for my DeviantArt account. For personal reasons I couldn’t continue that story, but occasionally I would still get sad fan-mails asking me to continue it.
Well, ask no more. When I started to finish ‘Small Shen’, my book with best-selling author Kylie Chan (out in December 2012), I decided to get back to work on the Zelda fanfic. This time, however, it would be in a slight different format to the original version - it would a mix between comics and prose, the same format as ‘Small Shen’ is in. It also involves music, so there’ll be musical tracks embedded in with the pages, mostly composed by my friend Yunyu.
So I literally just sat down and pounded an entire 300-page novel in a few months, calling it ‘Legend of Zelda: The Edge and the Light’. I guess my brain was fried at the end of that. Drawing it has been easier, since there is less art to do; and at the time of this post, I’ve done 113 pages, in 3 months
This is from the Qinghui Gardens, a Qing dynasty-era Chinese garden from Shunde, China. I’ve been to countless Chinese gardens over the years, and usually they’re all the same, but this one has to be thebestgarden I’ve yet seen. The design of the place is pretty amazing - it offers some startling and interesting views. Whoever designed this garden put great thought into where the viewer is standing. Definitely worth the visit.
