"The book contains 100 tales which are independent of each other, but contain many common themes. These tales have their origin in unofficial histories, anecdotes, and popular legends. They cover a span of time from the mythical beginnings of the Manchus to the last emperor of the Qing dynasty. The heroes and heroines of these tales are the Qing emperors and their wives, concubines, children, other members of the imperial house, high ranking courtiers, or favorite attendants." --Forward.
