Ni Kuang's Additions
Jin Yong went on travel for a short period of time during the writing of the novel, so Ni Kuang took over the serialisation and made additions amounting to more than 40,000 words. One notable extension by Ni Kuang is the episode in which A'zi is blinded. Since the novel was published as a serial, Jin Yong had to continue from where Ni Kuang stopped after he returned from his trip. In his revision, Jin Yong excised most of the parts added by Ni Kuang but retained the story about A'zi losing her sense of sight, since that chapter had become a crucial point in the plot's development.
