The Water Margin AKA Outlaws of the Marsh is one of China's four classic novels and a seed of wuxia literature and a kajillion kung fu movies and video games. It's got swordplay, sorcery, demons, superheroes, and lots of drinking. I just found this podcast where it is retold in a fun, conversational style, in 30-minute episodes, by a guy who grew up with the stories like many Chinese. I'm only into the third episode but so far I can tell it's great. The website is outlawsofthemarsh.com and you can also download it free from iTunes.

Thanks! I used to own a copy but lost it to water damage (ironically enough).
