You might know that the Chinese counterpart of “dragon” is “Long”, but you might not know that the former is an evil, greedy creature while the latter is divine and noble.  Just like the cultural difference between Chinese and Western fantasy, there are also gaps between our readers. On this panel, we will introduce the origins of Chinese and Western fantasy culture, and compare the tastes and preferences of our readers. Beyond the differences, will there be anything universal? What does Game of Thrones and the Novoland series share in common? Our writers from China and the West will share their opinions by connecting these concerns to their own writing careers.
