those more knowledgeable can correct me (and please do!), but my understanding is that zu, journey, and strange tales are the original sources and inspirations for xianxia.
journey to the west is the earliest published of the three, ming dynasty, 16th century. strange tales dates to the qing dynasty, c. 1740. mt zu published 1932. they all contain supernatural elements, often fairy tale bits as well. more what we'd call fantasy nowadays.
xianxia is a genre that was created recently, after the wuxia period we grew up with re: JY, LYS, GL, WLS, etc. xianxia just happens to incorporate the same supernatural/fairy tale/fantastic elements that zu, journey, and strange tales used.

Admin: hi guys! I'm adding a new section on the forum. Since so many of good ancient costume series appear in the market, like Nirvana in Fire, etc. A bit touch of wuxia, but not really wuxia. Some are historical fictions with a touch of wuxia,
