A book on Chang Cheh published by the Hong Kong Film Archive recently became available online sometime in 2003. It is available in both an English-language and a Chinese-language edition, and I don't yet know whether there is any difference in content between the two volumes. I also don't know whether or not there is any material on Chang Cheh's "Venoms" cycle of films from 1977 to 1981.

The late director Chang Cheh (1924-2002) was a key advocator of the 'new century of wuxia' movement in the Hong Kong cinema. Chang unveils to the readers his rarely known childhood, his aspired involvement in politics in his earlier years, and the hit trends he brought about in momentous phases of the Hong Kong cinema.

Some computers have trouble ordering from the HKIFF (Hong Kong International Film Festival)'s site, so some users might want to try CityLine if they can't get the HKIFF site to work. If you are unable to place an order at both sites, the relevant e-mail contacts are <hkiff@hkadc.org.hk> and CityLine (Hong Kong) Ltd. <cityline@cityline.com.hk>.
The Hong Kong Film Archive has another book on martial arts cinema and the Hong Kong International Film Festival has a number of books, too.
