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.
We’ve got a little bit of everything for you this week. It’s paperback time, which means affordable and portable reading is at your fingertips! Even more so if you include our audio release! We’ve got multi-award-nominated short fiction, mind-expanding science fiction, and more of the fantasy series that inspired the mega hit game The Witcher!
