This book is a collection of articles over the years. The articles focus on the Chinese written monuments of the 1st–13th centuries, including such important and little-studied phenomenon in the Chinese tradition as author collections named biji (筆記). Biji represents a kind of notebooks made by Chinese and varied greatly in scopes and topics. A number of other articles are devoted to the traditional prose named xiaoshuo (小說), collections of which were widespread in China since the 4th century and enjoyed great popularity. Typically, xiaoshuo are amazing records of wonder cases, descriptions of supernatural, magical events — or household sketches, witty dialogues, events that are associated with famous people of the time.
