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. He is now one of Poland's most famous and successful authors.
"One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever
read. Though it functions well as adventure fiction, it has added
depth and value as satire and commentary on fantasy literature ...
Sapkowski is a genuine stylist."--Nerds of a Feather
"The universe of Sapkowski's The Witcher is one of the most detailed and best-explored in modern fantasy, offering endless opportunities for fresh ideas ... Complex character relationships enrich this already complex world; this is the sort of series fantasy fans will cherish."--B&N
"Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodgepodge of fantasy, intellectual discourse, and dry humor. Recommended."--Time
"The Witcher delivers one of the most intense and rewarding role-playing experiences this year."--GT Reviews on The Witcher video game
"A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don't miss it!"-- Fantasy Book Review
