About the Author

Reviews

"One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read . . . . Sapkowski is a genuine stylist."--Nerds of a Feather
"Sapkowski has a phenomenal gift for narrative, inventing sensational events, creating a suggestive mood, and building up the suspense along with a dazzling, slightly cynical sense of humor."--Jacek Sieradzki, Polityka on The Last Wish
"Sapkowski is very good at creating interesting, imaginative characters with unusual levels of depth to them ... The Last Wish is an enjoyable book full of stories both melancholy and comic."--The Wertzone
"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
"Fantasy, intellectual discourse, and dry humor. Recommended."--Time
"Like Mieville and Gaiman, [Sapkowski] takes the old and makes it new ... fresh take on genre fantasy."--Foundation
on The Last Wish
"A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don't miss it!"-- Fantasy Book Review
"It is [his] world-weariness combined with his battle-honed powers that make Geralt such an interesting character. Here's hoping The Last Wish is merely the opening chapter in his English language adventures."--Edge
"I really, really enjoyed this book ... None of the characters in Sapkowski's world are black or white; they are all shades of grey, including Geralt and the monsters."--The Deckled Edge
"This beautifully written character-based story from Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski ... a refreshing champion."--The Specusphere
"I have never read a fantasy series like this, and suspect I never will again."--Nerds of a Feather
