Tienchi Martin-Liao was the columnist of the Pittsburg literature online magazine SAMPSONIA WAY. She wrote for the FEARLESS INK column – Blind Chess from May 2012 till July 2018. The articles are reposted here, some of them are updated if necessary. Most of the topics and contents are still up to date, because in China the suppression on the intellectuals and dissidents is more severe then ever. There is no freedom of expression, no freedom of press, and people go to jail when they write things that offend the authority.
