Richest Chinese Webnovel Author Ranking 2016

The Writer Rich List of 2016. Translated from zuojiabang.cn. USD values were converted using an approximate exchange rate of 1 USD=6.64 RMB.

I found this when I was researching to update my Twelve Olympians article for 2016. That ranking based on a voting system will also come out soon.

There is also an author ranking for authors, scriptwriters, foreign authors and others.

  1. Perfect World is my favourite on this list, why he only 6th? Ah well. Also, King of the Eternal night is on this frickin list, holy shit. I love that story, but it gets next to no love from translators, what gives?

    • King of the eternal night will likely be translated by alyschu soon as she said so, once against gods catches up, which isn’t far from, it will replace atg… so it’s just a matter of waiting when she starts releasing…

  3. How much popularity Xiao Ding has ? I know zhu xian got alot of attention through out the years, wonder how much he made ?

    Like

    • He’s popular but not as “popular” or rich in terms of money. I think Zhu Xian was published as more of a “pay x for xx amount of words” rather than the revenue sharing that might be going on now.

  4. Almost had a seizure when I saw WDQK listed as a seminal work. At least choose Battle Through The Heavens or The Great Ruler… I wouldn’t be happy, but at least I wouldn’t be in despair.
