About the Author

Andrzej Sapkowski was born in 1948 in Poland. He studied economy and business, but the success of his fantasy cycle about the sorcerer Geralt of Rivia turned him into a bestselling writer and he is now one of Poland's most famous and successful authors, selling more in his own country than Stephen King or Michael Crichton.

Reviews

Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodge podge of fantasy, intellectual discouse and dry humour. Recommended * Time Magazine *
Character interplay is complex, unsentimental and anchored in brutal shared history * SFX *
Delightfully dry humour, mythology brimming with radical creatures and a group of interesting characters, The Last Wish is a great introduction to this universe * Fantasy Book Review *
Sapkowski has a confident and rich voice which permeates the prose and remains post-translation. I'd recommend this to any fan of Heroic or Dark fiction * SF Book *
One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read * Nerds of a Feather *
Like Mieville and Gaiman, [Sapkowski] takes the old and makes it new . . . [a] fresh take on genre fantasy * Foundation *
There's lots of imagination on show, the writing has a strong voice, and the Witcher is an entertaining character * Mark Lawrence *
